i copy and pasted the 1000 digit number as my answer and the answer was incorrect.

i verified my algorithm seemed to work right so i reread the problem.

it was then i realized they didnt want the number(144 in the example) but instead wanted(12 in the example)

Hence the first 12 terms will be:

F1 = 1

F2 = 1

F3 = 2

F4 = 3

F5 = 5

F6 = 8

F7 = 13

F8 = 21

F9 = 34

F10 = 55

F11 = 89

F12 = 144

The 12th term, F12, is the first term to contain three digits.

What is the first term in the Fibonacci sequence to contain 1000 digits?
