# Fibonacci Numbers using Recursion

Problem:

Write a C++ program which prints the Fibonacci sequence or the Fibonacci numbers.Fibonacci sequence is named after Leonardo Fibonacci. Fibonacci numbers starts with the first two numbers 0 and 1, and each subsequent numbers takes as the sum of its previous two numbers.

Ex. 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5In mathematical equation, Fibonacci sequence can be represented as:

The first two numbers in the sequence are 0 and 1.

The 3rd number which is 1 is the sum of its previous two numbers - 0 and 1.

The 4th number which is 2 is the sum of its previous two numbers - 1 and 1.

So on and so forth...

Fn = F(n-1) + F(n-2)where F0 = 0, F1 = 1

/* Fibonacci series using Recursion */ #include <iostream> using namespace std; int fibonacci(int); int main(void) { int count; char waitInput; cout << "How many numbers in the Fibonacci sequence do you want to show? "; cin >> count; for (int i = 0; i < count; i++) { cout << " " << fibonacci(i) << " "; } cin>>waitInput; return 0; } //fibonacci function int fibonacci(int num) { if (num == 1) { return 1; } else if (num == 0) { return 0; } else { return fibonacci(num - 1) + fibonacci(num - 2); } }
