Euler’s Prob.2 – PHP Program to find the sum of the even-valued terms in the Fibonacci

PHP script for the Euler’s Problem 2.


Each new term in the Fibonacci sequence is generated by adding the previous two terms. By starting with 1 and 2, the first 10 terms will be:

1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, …

By considering the terms in the Fibonacci sequence whose values do not exceed four million, find the sum of the even-valued terms.

Solution for the above problem solved in PHP:


$sum        =     0;
$first         =     1;
$second        =      2;
echo "<b>EVEN Values from Fibonacci Series </b><br />";

//check if the second value is less than 4 million
while ($second < 4000000)
//check whether the value is odd or even
if($second % 2 == 0)
$sum += $second;
echo $second."<br>";

//keep the first value in a temporary variable
$tmp      = $first;
//assign the second value to first
$first   = $second;
//add the temp value and second
$second     = $tmp + $second;
//display the final value
echo "<br /><b>TOTAL: </b>". $sum;


How the code works is explained in the above code itself. Hope you Enjoy!
