Unfortunately I don't think there is an algebraic notation available here so the following might be difficult to follow. You could express the task in basically three lines. Let J be any term in the series. So J suffix n is the nth term. J suffix 1 = 2, J suffix 2 = 3, J suffix n+2 = J suffix n + J suffix n+1. The expression for "SUM of" is the greek letter capital sigma. Write Sigma, above write "10" and below write n=1. To the right write J suffix n. The expression means "calculate the sum of all the terms Jn where n is 1 to 10. I think this what's behind your question?
