Help with shell script to find sum of first n numbers of Fibonacci series

Use and complete the template provided. The entire template must be completed. If you don't, your post may be deleted!

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data:

Shell script to find sum of first n numbers of Fibonacci series

2. Relevant commands, code, scripts, algorithms:

Code:
prev=0
next=1

echo \$prev

while(true)
do

echo \$next

sum=\$((\$prev+\$next))
#swap
prev=\$next
next=\$sum
sleep 1
done

3. The attempts at a solution (include all code and scripts):

Code:
# Shell scrpt to generate Fibonacci series using recursion
export MINIDX=2
Fibonacci ()
{
idx=\$1
if [ "\$idx" -lt "\$MINIDX" ]; then
echo "\$idx"
else
(( --idx ))
term1=\$( Fibonacci \$idx )
(( --idx ))
term2=\$( Fibonacci \$idx )
echo \$(( term1 + term2 ))
fi
}
echo -n "Enter the number of term : "
for (( i=0; i<=\$MAXTERM; i++ ))
do
FIBO=\$(Fibonacci \$i)
echo -n "\$FIBO "
done
echo
exit

4. Complete Name of School (University), City (State), Country, Name of Professor, and Course Number (Link to Course):
D.G Ruparel College(Mumbai University),Mumbai(Maharashtra),India
Professor Puja Tambe and Computer Science
