### What is a Fibonacci Series?

A series of numbers in which each number is the sum of the two preceding or previous numbers is called Fibonacci Series.

For example, Fibonacci series upto 7 numbers is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13.

In above example,
first 2 numbers (1, 1) are printed directly as there are no preceding numbers. But after that, i.e the 3rd number (2) is the sum of 1st and 2nd number (1+1=2). Similarly to get 4th number, we add 2nd and 3rd number. (i.e., 1+2=3). You can use this pattern to find fibonacci series upto any number.

Mathematical expression to find Fibonacci number is :

F_{n}=F_{n-1}+F_{n-2}

i.e. To get nth position number, you should add (n-2) and (n-1) position number.

### Flowchart for Fibonacci Series Algorithm:

### Pseudocode for Fibonacci Series upto n numbers:

Step 1: Start
Step 2: Declare variable a, b, c, n, i
Step 3: Initialize variable a=0, b=1 and i=2
Step 4: Read n from user
Step 5: Print a and b
Step 6: Repeat until i<=n :
Step 6.1: c=a+b
Step 6.2: print c
Step 6.3: a=b, b=c
Step 6.4: i=i+1
Step 7: Stop
So, if a user Enters 5,then n=5,

Variables a and b are initialized to 0 and 1 respectively. In Step 5, We directly print a and b, So the Output till Step 5 is-

**0 1**

In Step 6, value of "i" is 2 as the first two numbers (0, 1) are already printed. Now for every iteration of "i", we add a and b, so variable "c" now becomes 1 (i.e. 0+1). Then the value of "c" is printed. So Output now becomes -

**0 1 1**

In Step 6.3, we move 2nd last value (which is stored in variable "b") to variable "a" and last value (which is stored in variable "c") to b. So Now,

a=1, b=1

In Step 6.4, Value of "i" is incremented by 1(i.e. i=i+1 ) and iteration again continues until value of "i" is less than user entered number "n".

So, For i=3, Again following steps 6.1 to 6.4, Output will be-

**0 1 1 2**

So, For i=4, Again following steps 6.1 to 6.4, Output will be-

**0 1 1 2 3**

So, For i=5, Again following steps 6.1 to 6.4, Output will be-

**0 1 1 2 3 5**

For i=6, condition i less than n becomes false as (6<=5) is false. Hence the Final Output will be -

**0 1 1 2 3 5**
