Using memoization, we have come up with a way to make sure we only calculate each Fibonacci number only once.

The first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are 1 and 1, and you can get the next number in the sequence by adding the two previous numbers.

You might be thinking that it would be straightforward to start from the beginning of the sequence and work our way up.

This is the "bottom-up" approach, where you start with the smallest subproblems, and work upwards. Bottom-up and memoization are both variants of "Dynamic Programming", which ensure that we are not duplicating work of subproblems.

Please create a solution for Fibonacci using the bottom-up approach.

Here is the pseudocode:

fibonacci(n):
  if n is 1 or 2:
    return 1
  previous_value and value_before_previous are 1
  from 3 to n:
    new_value is previous_value + value_before_previous
    value_before_previous is previous_value
    previous_value is new_value
  return previous_value
