# Create m Fibonacci numbers

fibonacci <- function(m) {
m <- numeric(m)
t1 <- 0
t2 <- 1
for (i in 1:m) {
val <- t1 + t2
print(val)
}
}

If i now enter fibonacci(10), it says it only uses the first element, the rest remain unused.

you immediately take the number m and make an object m which is also numeric, but full of zero's of length the number m that was first given. i.e `0 0 0 0`
the error therefore refers to your instruction to take i from ` in 1:m` as defining some integer sequence starting from 1 and ending at ... `0 0 0 0 ` is only possible if one ignores every subsequent `0` to the first .

amusingly I asked the Artificial Intelligence chatbot over at ChatGPT (openai.com)

function to generate fibonacci sequence from 1 to n , in R ?
and it answered with the following

``````# define a function that generates the Fibonacci sequence

fibonacci <- function(n) {
# define the starting values
a <- 0
b <- 1

# check if the number of terms is 0 or 1
if (n == 0) {
return(a)
} else if (n == 1) {
return(c(a, b))
} else {
# generate the Fibonacci sequence
seq <- c(a, b)
for (i in 2:n) {
c <- a + b
seq <- c(seq, c)
a <- b
b <- c
}
return(seq)
}
}

# test the function with different values of n
print(fibonacci(0)) # 0
print(fibonacci(1)) # 0, 1
print(fibonacci(2)) # 0, 1, 1
print(fibonacci(3)) # 0, 1, 1, 2
print(fibonacci(4)) # 0, 1, 1, 2, 3``````
