I am trying to work out the code to get a Fibonacci sequence, using the
while() loop and only one variable. And I can't figure it out.

while (max(Fibonacci)<500){
Fibonacci<-c(Fibonacci, (max(Fibonacci) + ?(Fibanacci))) }

How can I tell R to take the value one before the max value? (Without
defining another variable)

(Probably super easy... I am a beginner...)
