1,2,3 isn't the first three numbers in the Fibonacci Sequence. Neither is 1,1,2 really, but it's closer than 1,2,3!!

Extend function is not known to my RStudio / RGui. An error to that effect is returned.

I saw 1,1,2 and guessed that as I don't know Python.

Interesting question, thanks Steve
Haven't used Python in quite a few years....

Depends on whether you want to start with F_0 or F_1...

"By definition, the first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are either 1 and 1, or 0 and 1, depending on the chosen starting point of the sequence, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two."

If it's on wikipedia, it has to be right! ๐

I guess it depends on who gets to define what the Fibonacci sequence is.
OEIS (https://oeis.org/search?q=Fibonacci&language=english&go=Search) has it start with (0,1[,1]), but the original text has it start with (1,2 [,3]):
"You can indeed see in the margin how we operated, namely that we added the first number to the second, namely the 1 to the 2..." (English translation quote from https://www.math.utah.edu/~beebe/software/java/fibonacci/liber-abaci.html )

This isn't an R question. It's a Python question.

1,2,3 was a typo. It should have been 1, 1, 2 for all answers to make things consistent. Points awarded back.

Complete guess, never used Python so learned something.
