# Java: Print the first 15 numbers of the Pell series

## Java Numbers: Exercise-25 with Solution

Write a Java program to print the first 15 numbers of the Pell series.

In mathematics, the Pell numbers are an infinite sequence of integers. The sequence of Pell numbers starts with 0 and 1, and then each Pell number is the sum of twice the previous Pell number and the Pell number before that.:

thus, 70 is the companion to 29, and 70 = 2 × 29 + 12 = 58 + 12.

The first few terms of the sequence are :

0, 1, 2, 5, 12, 29, 70, 169, 408, 985, 2378, 5741, 13860,…

**Sample Solution:**

**Java Code:**

```
import java.util.Scanner;
public class Example25 {
public static void main(String args[])
{
int n,a=1,b=0,c;
System.out.println("First 20 Pell numbers: ");
for(n=1; n<=20; n++)
{
c= a + 2*b;
System.out.print(c+" ");
a = b;
b = c;
}
}
}
```

Sample Output:

First 20 Pell numbers: 1 2 5 12 29 70 169 408 985 2378 5741 13860 33461 80782 195025 470832 1136689 2744210 6625109 15994428
