    This is loops, and this is also probably homework... so all I'm gonna tell you is that it involves one for loop inside of another for loop (if I recall from the last time I did this).. think about it.

    there is no need for nested loop. A single loop would work.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    It's also not a very good algorithm, as it can't count beyond 100 numbers, and because it store all the unneeded intermediate numbers. You really only need to store 3 numbers at a time, and there' no need to make an arbitrary limit like that.
    It is too clear and so it is hard to see.

    Had he known what fire was,
    He could have cooked his rice much sooner.
