 write a recursive function that solves the equation X[n] = X[n-1] + X[n-2] where X is an array that contains at least two integer values and the function should solve the question for the 3rd value in the array2 AnswersI'm guessing a key element they want to see in your answer is that you realize there's a lot of recalculating the same values over and over in the recursion process, especially for large values of n. For example, x[5] = x[4] + x[3] x[4] = x[3] + x[2] x[3] = x[2] + x[1] x[2] = x[1] + x[0] x[1], x[0] are known x[1] is known x[2] = x[1] + x[0] x[1], x[0] are known x[3] = x[2] + x[1] x[2] = x[1] + x[0] x[1], x[0] are known x[1] is known If you cache a couple of values in the recursive function, you can improve performance significantly. You might also get some points for recognizing this can be used to generate the Fibonacci sequence.yes its a fibonacci series problem solved using recursion and memoization, classic example of dynamic programming. without caching runtime is exponential.

### Senior Android Engineer at Instacart was asked...

 Take-Home Challenge: Implement a simple Android app that meets the challenge specifications.2 AnswersThe test was pretty long in my experience yeah. I was rejected though because my images for the pictures weren't to scale on different devices but I fixed later on. They just didn't care. They also claimed that the timer didn't work when you pressed home button and back but I had "don't keep activities" on like it said to do. Apparently it was for something else and the timer thing ONLY worked with "don't keep activities" on which is not what they wanted. Overall, a misleading problem statement and a big waste of time since this job has been open since last year.The challenge is sort of like a quiz game really.
