C++ Program To Find Fibonacci Series Using Functions

In this tutorial, you will learn to print the Fibonacci series in C++ programming (up to nth term, and up to a certain number).

Find Fibonacci Series Using Functions In C++ Language

The Fibonacci sequence is a series where the next term is the sum of the previous two terms. The first two terms of the Fibonacci sequence are 0 followed by 1.

The Fibonacci sequence: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21

Example 1: Fibonacci Series up to n number of terms

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
    int n, t1 = 0, t2 = 1, nextTerm = 0;

    cout << "Enter the number of terms: ";
    cin >> n;

    cout << "Fibonacci Series: ";

    for (int i = 1; i <= n; ++i) {
        // Prints the first two terms.
        if(i == 1) {
            cout << t1 << ", ";
            continue;
        }
        if(i == 2) {
            cout << t2 << ", ";
            continue;
        }
        nextTerm = t1 + t2;
        t1 = t2;
        t2 = nextTerm;
        
        cout << nextTerm << ", ";
    }
    return 0;
}


Enter the number of terms: 5
Fibonacci Series: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3,

Example 2: Program to Generate Fibonacci Sequence Up to a Certain Number

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main() {
    int t1 = 0, t2 = 1, nextTerm = 0, n;

    cout << "Enter a positive number: ";
    cin >> n;

    // displays the first two terms which is always 0 and 1
    cout << "Fibonacci Series: " << t1 << ", " << t2 << ", ";

    nextTerm = t1 + t2;

    while(nextTerm <= n) {
        cout << nextTerm << ", ";
        t1 = t2;
        t2 = nextTerm;
        nextTerm = t1 + t2;
    }
    return 0;
}


Enter a positive number: 10
Fibonacci Series: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8,
