Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

a1=1           a2=2

an=(an-1)+(an-2)      for integers n>= 3

a3=a2+a1

    =2+1

    =3

a4=a3+a2

     =3+2

      =5

a5=a4+a3

    =5+3

   =8

so next three terms are 3,5,8.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
