Euler Problem 002 with F#

Problem Statement

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.


Recursive Solution:

Using infinite Fibonacci sequence:

A bit shorter version can be derived using Seq.SumBy:


val eulerProblem2Answer : int = 4613732
val eulerProblem2Answer' : int = 4613732
val eulerProblem2Answer'' : int = 4613732
