Project Euler Problems 1 to 100 - Problem 2: Even Fibonacci Numbers

Tell us what’s happening:

I do not understand the reason why I cannot pass the test. I tried it in Sublime and it worked there.

Your code so far

function fiboEvenSum(n) {
    let array = [1,2];
let sumOfNumbersInArray=2;
let arrayOfPrimeNumbers=[2];
let sumOfPrimeNumbers=2;
let sumOfNNumbers=0;
let arra = [];

for(let i=1;i<=n;i++){

    for(let i=0;i<arrayOfPrimeNumbers.length;i++){
let sumOfArr=0;
let arrayWithoutDuplicates = [ Set(arra)];
for(let i=0;i<arrayWithoutDuplicates.length;i++){

return sumOfArr;

//console.log(arrayOfPrimeNumbers.length,sumOfArr, arrayWithoutDuplicates)

What error message do you have? I’m a bit dubious that this would pass any of the tests since I don’t think you are generating the Fibonacci numbers.

Edit: I think your variable names don’t agree with what is actually happening here. This problem has no prime numbers. Also, you’re making much more massive arrays than you need.

Hi @santiagodeleondecar1


It looks like you have an infinite loop, so the tests are timing out.

Happy coding

I did it over. Thanks for the suggestion.

function fiboEvenSum(n) {
    let thirdPosition=0;
    let arrayOfNumbers=[2];
    let firstPosition = 1;
    let secondPosition = 2;
    let sumOfNumbers=0;

    thirdPosition = firstPosition + secondPosition;
    secondPosition = thirdPosition;
    thirdPosition = firstPosition + secondPosition;


    for(    let i = 0;  i<arrayOfNumbers.length;    i++){

         sumOfNumbers   =   sumOfNumbers    +   arrayOfNumbers[i];

   return sumOfNumbers;

That looks like it should run much faster!

You can make a tiny, tiny tweak to make it a bit faster

Note that the pattern is
1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34,… What’s the pattern with the even numbers?

Each even number is every third position, therefore the sum of two odd numbers.

Right, so if you rearrange your logic a tiny bit, you never need to check % 2 === 0
