(11C) Tribonacci Sequence
The Tribonacci Sequence is a generalization of the Fibonacci sequence where each term is the sum of the three preceding terms.

The sequence begins 0, 1, 1, 2, 4, 7, 13, 24, 44, 81, 149,. . . .

Input the Nth number
Example: 7 A result 24
_______10 A result 149

Code:

LBL A
STO 0

ENTER

Interesting formula. But implemented waaayyy too complicated. ;-)
Actually it's nothing more than u · vn with u and v being two constants.

So what about this one:

Code:
LBL C
ENTER
1,839286755
STO 0
x<>y
y^x
RCL 0
4
x
RCL 0
x^2
-
1
-
/
,4
+
INT
RTN

Or simply...

Code:
LBL C
ENTER
1,839286755
x<>y
y^x
,336228117
x
,4
+
INT
RTN

RE: (11C) Tribonacci Sequence
I am a little confused as to how a tribonacci sequence can be a generalisation of a Fibonacci - though to be fair Wikipedia also uses that terminology.
I'd have thought a tribonacci would be a variation, but an n-bonacci capable of handling any number of summations would be a generalisation.Smile

But my main reason for posting isn't to quibble, but to enquire. I always find it helpful to think of applications to help focus upon the maths. Fibonacci always makes me think of rabbits, though I am sure that is not it's only use. Does the Tribonacci sequence have any practical use?
