# Sum of nth terms of Modified Fibonacci series made by every pair of two arrays

Given two arrays A and B of same size m. You have to find the sum of nth terms of Fibonacci like series (value of every term is sum of previous two terms) formed by every element of A as first and every element of B as second.

**Examples:**

Input : {1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, n = 3 Output : 63 Explanation : A[] = {1, 2, 3}; B[] = {4, 5, 6}; n = 3; All the possible series upto 3rd terms are: We have considered every possible pair of A and B and generated third term using sum of previous two terms. 1, 4, 5 1, 5, 6 1, 6, 7 2, 4, 6 2, 5, 7 2, 6, 8 3, 4, 7 3, 5, 8 3, 6, 9 sum = 5+6+7+6+7+8+7+8+9 = 63 Input : {5, 8, 10}, {6, 89, 5} Output : 369

The** naive approach** is to take every pair of the array A an B and make a Fibonacci series with them.

An **efficient approach ** is based on below idea.

Store the original Fibonacci series in an array and multiply the first term by original_fib[n-2] and second term by original_fib[n-1].

Every element of array A, as well as B, will come m times so multiply them by m.

(m * (B[i] * original_fib[n-1]) ) + (m * (A[i] * original_fib[n-2]) )

By using the efficient method it can be written as

original_fib[]={0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8}; A[] = {1, 2, 3}; B[] = {4, 5, 6}; n = 3; for (i to m) sum = sum + 3*(B[i]*original_fib[2]) + 3*(A[i]*original_fib[1])

Below is the implementation of above approach:
