What is the first term in the Fibonacci sequence to contain 1000 digits?

so i made a program that finds the fibonocci's sequence (fs).
I tried to do it recursively but it takes too long for big numbers. so i made a manual one.

BUt as i count how many digits there are for each (fs). a problem exist. After F(1476)--which has 309 digits, the program stops suddenly. I think its because of memory space or something. Any ways, this is why I turned to you. any help

here is my code

#include<iostream>
#include<fstream>
#include<iomanip>
#include<cmath>
using namespace std;

int countdigits(unsigned long double x)
{	
	int count(0);

	while(x>.99999999999999)
	{
		
		x/=10;
		count++;
	}
	return count;
}



int main(){

unsigned long double result = 0.0;
unsigned long double x = 1.0;
unsigned long double y = 1.0;
unsigned long double result2 = 0.0;
int count(0);
for(int i = 3;;i++)
{
	result = x+y;
	y = x;
	x = result;
	result2 = result;
	cout<<setprecision(10)<<"F of "<<i<<" is : "<<result/1000000<<"	count is : "<<countdigits(result2)<<endl;

	if(( countdigits(result2) == 1000 ) )
	{
		
		cin.get();
	}


}

return 0;
}

try running the program to get a better understanding , and then maybe you can help be better. thanks :)

unsigned long double result = 0.0;
unsigned long double x = 1.0;
unsigned long double y = 1.0;
unsigned long double result2 = 0.0;

There is no such thing as an unsigned double.

As you only need to use integers, you should try using a 64-bit integer variable type instead of a double, as using a double will also give you inaccurate results. But you wont be able to get accurate big numbers using just the standard C++ library, you will need to use a seperate big number library or class such as this .

Hope this helps.

use a dp solution

#include<iostream.h>
#include<string.h>
#include<vector.h>
#include<iterator.h>
int main()
{
vector<long long int>v1(101);
vector<long long int>v2(101);
int i=0;
for(;i<101;i++)
{
if(i==0||i==1)
v1[i]==1;
else
v1[i]=i;
}
v2[0]=v2[1]=1;
i=2;
for(;i<101;i++)
{
v2[i]=v2[i-1]*v1[i];
}
cout<<"nter no for which  u want factorial";
istream_iterator<long long int>is(cin);
ostream_iterator<long long int>os(cout,"\n");
int a;

a=*is;
*os=v2[a];
cout<<"the factorialof "<<a<<"is";
*os;
    return 0;
}
