i need scilab progam for

1. to obtain fibonacci series

2.to obtain non fibonacci series

3. to find the root of the equation f(x,a)=a*cos(x)-x*e(-a*x) for different values of a∈[1,10]

please reply soon.

it is imporant for my exams

I do not program in Scilab. Best I can do is pseudocode, you will and should write them.

1. to obtain fibonacci series

I guess you mean Fibonacci sequence.

1) x1 = 1;

2) x2 = 1;

3) h = x2;

4) x2 = x1 + x2;

5)Print[x2]

5) x1 = h;

6) Goto 3

Remember to debug it if necessary. I am partying.

2.to obtain non fibonacci series

What is a non Fibonacci sequence specifically?

The example for Fibonacci is there: http://hkumath.hku.hk/~nkt/Scilab/IntroToScilab.html

for 3, you can use newton-raphson,

E.g. in python,

```
from math import exp, sin, cos
t=3
told=1
a=5
while abs(t-told) > 0.00000000001:
told=t
t=t - (a*cos(t) - t*exp(-a*t))/(a*t*exp(-a*t) - a*sin(t) - exp(-a*t))
print t
```

Hi;

Is it continuous?

What values can a take? a = 1,2,3,4... integers? Or any value from 1 to 10 like 7.27?

question is

scilab program to find the root of eqn f(x,a)=a*cos(x)-x*e^(-a*x) for different values of a∈[1,10]

Why not use the code gAr provided for python.

```
from math import exp, sin, cos
t=3
told=1
input[a];
while abs(t-told) > 0.00000000001:
told=t
t=t - (a*cos(t) - t*exp(-a*t))/(a*t*exp(-a*t) - a*sin(t) - exp(-a*t))
print t
```

I just changed one line to Input[a]. Now you can enter any a you want.

Generate the fibonacci numbers like I did in the first post and then an array of {1,2,3,4,5....}. When you get a fibonacci number cross it out by zeroing the array element.

Putting a zero in the array element.

Do you know what an array is?

Hi prathima

Basically, just take the array {1,2,3,4,5,6,...} and put a zero instead all the numbers which are Fibonacci numbers.
