    Sequences question!

    This sequence is defined implicitly. List the first six terms of this sequence?

    d0 = 1 = d1 and dn+2 = dn+1 + dn.

    The 0 in d0 is lower to the d and the 1 in d1 is lower to the d, and the n+2 and n+1 next to the d's are lower and the last dn has the n lower (I hope you get my drift!)

    This is the fibonacci sequence

    The next term is the sum of the previous 2 terms.

    1+1 = 2
    1+2 = 3
    2+3 = 5

    and so on
