First Forward Into Logo 11: Sequences

Stage: 3, 4 and 5 Challenge Level: Challenge Level:1

First Forward Into Logo
Previous: FF10

 

Consider the following procedure which uses two variables:
(Warning - you may have to press HALT to stop this procedure.)
TO LOP :X :Y
PR :X
WAIT 120
LOP :Y :X + :Y
END

What do you think is happening this time?
Try 'chasing' through the procedure the values: x = 1 and y = 1.
No longer surprised!
Why do you think it goes on and on...?
Yes it keeps starting itself again, but with different variables,
moving on in the sequence by adding the last two variables.

Why not experiment further changing the fourth line?
For example:
LOP :Y :X +:Y*2
LOP :Y :X - :Y*2
LOP :Y :X * 2

Any surprises?

LOP :Y * 2 :X + :Y

Etc. Etc. Etc....
