The sentence "Our goal is to see how to generate a Fibonacci-like sequence without any prime numbers." would make more sense if it ruled out the obvious and trivial common factors solution. But I don't think this affects the problem itself - the stated requirement is to find a set of tuples, not just A0 and A1, so the lack of the condition doesn't make much difference. Given the form of the required answer, it doesn't seem to allow any trivial solution that would otherwise be forbidden.
