C Exercises: Print Fibonacci Series

C Recursion : Exercise-3 with Solution

Write a program in C to print Fibonacci Series using recursion.

Sample Solution:

C Code:

#include<stdio.h>
 
int term;
int fibonacci(int prNo, int num);
 
void main() 
{
   static int prNo = 0, num = 1;
	printf("\n\n Recursion : Print Fibonacci Series :\n");
	printf("-----------------------------------------\n");   
 
   printf(" Input number of terms for the Series (< 20) : ");
   scanf("%d", &term);
 printf(" The Series are :\n"); 
   printf(" 1  ");
   fibonacci(prNo, num);
    printf("\n\n");
}
 
int fibonacci(int prNo, int num) 
{
   static int i = 1;
   int nxtNo;
 
   if (i == term)
      return (0);
   else 
   {
      nxtNo = prNo + num;
      prNo = num;
      num = nxtNo;
      printf("%d  ", nxtNo);
 
      i++;
      fibonacci(prNo, num); //recursion, calling the function fibonacci itself
   }
   return (0);
}

Sample Output:

 Recursion : Print Fibonacci Series :                                                                         
-----------------------------------------                                                                     
 Input number of terms for the Series (< 20) : 10                                                             
 The Series are :                                                                                             
 1  1  2  3  5  8  13  21  34  55
