# This still failing for me Please help!

I am total lost on this

```
var count = 0;
// Recursively find Xth Fibonacci number
var fib = function(x){
// Keeps track of the amount of work done computing a Fibonacci
count++;
// Base Case
if(x < 2 ) { return 1; }
// Recursive calls
return fib( count ); fib(count);
};
var f = fib(10);
console.log("It took "+count+" calculations to find that the 10th fibonacci number is "+f+".");
```

**I found your problem! All you have to do is take away the fib(count); from after the return function!**

```
// here is the finished code
var count = 0;
// Recursively find Xth Fibonacci number
var fib = function(x){
// Keeps track of the amount of work done computing a Fibonacci
count++;
// Base Case
if(x < 2 ) { return 1; }
// Recursive calls
return fib( count );
};
var f = fib(10);
console.log("It took "+count+" calculations to find that the 10th fibonacci number is "+f+".");
```

**Hope this helped!**

That's not right, count is just used to see how efficient the function is (as the comments say); you're not supposed to use it in the function (other than incrementing it). Your method will always call

`fib(1)`

in the recursive case, then return 1. The recursive case should actually be`return fib(x - 1) + fib(x - 2);`
