# C Exercises: Sum even-valued in a Fibonacci sequence

## C Programming Challenges: Exercise-18 with Solution

In mathematics, the Fibonacci numbers, commonly denoted F_{n} form a sequence, called the Fibonacci sequence, such that each number is the sum of the two preceding ones, starting from 0 and 1. That is, and for n > 1. By starting with 1 and 2, the first 10 terms will be:
1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, . . .

Write a C program to find the sum of the even-valued terms from the terms in the Fibonacci sequence whose values do not exceed one million.

**C Code:**

```
#include <stdio.h>
int main(void)
{
unsigned int x1 = 1, x2 = 1, x3 = 2, num_sum = 0;
while (x3 < 10) {
x3 = x1 + x2;
num_sum += x3 * !(x3%2);
x1 = x2;
x2 = x3;
}
printf("%u\n", num_sum);
return 0;
}
```

Sample Output:

10
