im stuck on my comp science homework and really need some help with a couple problems..ill post them hereConsider the following sequence of numbers: (15 points)

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, ...

This is a variation of the Fibonnaci sequence where the first two values are 1 and all other values in the sequence are the sum of the two values in the sequence that immediately precede it. You are to write a Pippin program (call it fib.dat) that when supplied a positive integer in W will compute the Wth Fibonnaci number and place it into Y. For example, if W is set to 4 and the program is run, then when the program halts, Y should have the value 3. Likewise, if a value of 7 is used for W, the value of Y should be 13 after the program halts. Your program may assume that the value in W is at least 1. Your program should work properly for values of W up to 11 (when W is 11, Y should be set to 89). Fibonnaci numbers beyond the 11th one are out of range for Pippin (you may assume that W will be less than 12, but if the program is run with such a value you will simply get a number out of range error at some point in the execution). Place the Pippin program (called fib.dat) on a diskette. Make sure that the diskette is labeled on the outside with your name and section number.

can anyone help???
