Each new term in the Fibonacci sequence is generated by adding the previous two terms. By starting with 1 and 2, the first 10 terms will be:
1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, ...By considering the terms in the Fibonacci sequence whose values do not exceed four million, find the sum of the even-valued terms.
Using the formula
we simply calculate each fibonacci up to (and possibly including) 4 million. For each fibonacci number, we add it to the total if it is even.
