How would I solve this part of the Fibonacci sequence piecewise function?

f(n) = f(n-1)+f(n-2) if n > 1. Thanks

What do you mean solve it ?

f(0) = 1

f(1) = 1

f(2) = 2

f(3) = 1+2 = 3

f(4) = 2+3 = 5

f(5) = 3+5 = 8

f(6) = 5+8 = 13

f(7) = 8+13 = 21

I'm being asked to solve f(4) = f(4-1) + f(4-2). The answers is 3, but I don't know how to get to that answer. Thanks

f(4) = f(3)+f(2) = 3 + 2 = 5

as I showed you above.

The answer is not 3 but 5
