# Project Euler question #2 solved in Python

### By Steve Claridge on 2014-03-15.

Question 2 is:

*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.*

My not very elegant solution is:

```
a = 0
b = 1
t = 0
while b < 4000001:
if (a+b) % 2 == 0:
t += (a+b)
b = (a+b)
a = (b-a) print t
```
