    Default For Loop for Fibonacci code

    Hello Everyone,

    I need to write a For Loop that prints out the first 12 Fibonacci numbers:
    1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 144.

    The problem I am having is that I can not get the first two 1 numbers. I only get 1.2.3.5.8.....
    int a=1;
    int b=1;
    for (int i=1; i<12;i++)
    {
      System.out.print(a+" ");
      a=a+b;
      b=a-b;
    }

    Do I need to add another For Loop that sub-tracks so that I can get the first digit of 1?

    0,1,1,2,3,5,8....

    I think it works if you change b to 0.

    Whether the suggested approach is right or not, it should give you something to think about that will help you. Your current algorithm is unnecessarily complicated.

    Thanks Hamenopi,

    Changing B to =0 worked.
