1) There are 5 pairs of integers {(0, -1), (-1, 0), (0, 0), (0, 1), (1, 0)} that satisfy the condition: x^{2} + y^{2} < 2. How many pairs of integers (x, y) exist such that x^{2} + y^{2} < 6?

2) A sequence F_{1}, F_{2}, F_{3} ... follows the pattern: F_{n} = F_{n-1} + F_{n-2}. That is, any term after the second one, is the sum of its previous two terms. Example: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, ... . If F_{1}=4, F_{7}=37, what is F_{3}?
