Hi!

I am trying to work out the code to get a Fibonacci sequence, using the while() loop and only one variable. And I can't figure it out.

Fibonacci<-c(1,1)
while (max(Fibonacci)<500){
Fibonacci<-c(Fibonacci, (max(Fibonacci) + ?(Fibanacci))) }

How can I tell R to take the value one before the max value? (Without defining another variable)

(Probably super easy... I am a beginner...)

Thanks,
Georgie
