I am new to Python programming, I was trying to work out a few problems in
order to grasp the knowledge gained after going through the basic chapters
on Python programming. I got stuck with a memory error.
Following is what I did,
1. I need to find the sum of all numbers at even positions in the
Fibonacci series upto 2 million.
2. I have used lists to achieve this.
3. My program works good with smaller ranges. Say till 10,000 or even
100,000. However when I compute the sum for bigger ranges it gives me the
4. Also could someone tell me how to get the result in the form of an
exponent. For instance, I would prefer 10^5 rather 100000.
Thanks in advance,
