In the Fibonacci sequence question there are missing just one number 1,2,3,4,5,8 in the middle of 1 and 2 there is missing the number 1

Hi emidepegaso,

Well spotted! Actually, the question asks about a particular sequence ('in this Fibonacci sequence'), so it is not intended to be complete. You're right, though, that the full sequence should begin with 1, 1, 2 ...

Best wishes,

nice XD XD

My last lecture was about listening but I didn't get it because of the teacher had poor techniques to explain her ideas.

I also want to know some example for the lecture because I was Mathematics student. I didn't know about Math that is important in everywhere. Teachers in my country didn't explain like that. So, I want to know about Math that is useful in everywhere.

I think it was a linguistic aspect in the field of technical documentation. It has been asked about how works it the functional elements in the text? the professor has explained the circumstance of my question and has given me some book.

it was an English lecture about skimming and scanning i didn't get it very well

Firstly I was finished university since 10 years ago.
Secondaly I remember a lot of cases but I will to talk of one case only when I was at lecture - any lecture- I was ask professor a lot and he was always answered me.

The last lecture that I attended, was one year ago when I was a student.
I can remember one case when I had difficulty understand the payable and receivable accounts, and I couldn't know the difference between them. I asked my professor to found time to explain it with more examples, and he did it. He was satisfied with my question and interest to learn, so he approached me and explained it in detail. I still remember his advice and lectures about accounting.

My last lecture was 3 years ago when I studied Master about Chemistry. At that time, I didn't know how to use the chemical equipment so my professor gave me some instructions. She explained it to me step by step, clearly, slowly. Then, I could do it right away.
