Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f(3)=f(2)+f(1)=2+1=3 you can find other terms like this.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so, f(1) = f(2) and f(n1) + f(n2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0n= term that you hve to find so to find 3rd term you should replace n with 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm f(\color{Red}{n}1) = f(\color{ReD}{3}1)\] solve the parentheses 31 =2 that's how he got f(2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\huge\rm f(\color{Red}{3}) = f(\color{ReD}{3}1)+f(\color{Red}{3}2)\] solve the parentheses 31 =2 that's how he got f(2) 31 is one so f(3) = f(2)+f(1) now replace f(2) and f(1) with their values

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0given f(1)= 1 f(2) = 2 so substitute f(1) for 1 f(2) for 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So where do those 1, and 2 go? I don't see f(2) or f(1) in the equation that you put above which is the f(3) = f(31) + f(32)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes replace f(1) and f(2) given is : f(1) = 1 f(2) =2 so plug them in \[\huge\rm f(\color{Red}{3}) = f(\color{ReD}{3}1)+f(\color{Red}{3}2)\] f(1) = 1 f(2) =2 so plug them in \[\huge\rm f(\color{Red}{3}) = \color{ReD}1+\color{Red}{2}\] 1+2 = 3 so f(3) = 3 now replace n with 4 to find 4th term
