## Fibonacci program in Ruby

The task is to develop a program that prints Fibonacci series in Ruby Programming Language.

Before getting into the logic to build Fibonacci series, let us understand what exactly a Fibonacci series means. Fibonacci series is nothing but a series of numbers in which the current number is the sum of the previous two numbers.

e.g. The Fibonacci series up to 10 is: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55

You can observe that the last number 5 is the sum of 2 and 3 and others are similarly the sum of the previous two numbers.

You can put the above scenario in the code logic with the help of recursive as well as non-recursive approach. In the following program, both methods are mentioned.

Methods used:

• puts: Used to create an interaction with the user by writing texts on the console.
• gets: This method is used to take input from the user in the form of string.
• fib(): This is a user-defined method which is following the recursive approach of finding the Fibonacci series.

### Ruby code to print a Fibonacci series

```=begin
Ruby program to print Fibonacci series
without recursion
=end

first=0
second=1
nextterm=0

puts "Enter the number of terms:-"
n=gets.chomp.to_i

puts "The first #{n} terms of Fibonacci series are:-"
c=1
while(c<=n+1)
if(c<=1)
nextterm=c
else
puts nextterm
nextterm=first+second
first=second
second=nextterm
end
c+=1
end
```

Output

```Enter the number of terms:-
15
The first 15 terms of Fibonacci series are:-
1
1
2
3
5
8
13
21
34
55
89
144
233
377
610
```

Method 2:

```=begin
Ruby program to print Fibonacci series with recursion
=end

def fib(n)
if (n<=2)
return 1
else
return (fib(n-1)+fib(n-2))
end
end

puts "Enter the number of terms:-"
n=gets.chomp.to_i

puts "The first #{n} terms of fibonnaci series are:-"
for c in 1..n
puts fib(c)
end
```

Output

```Enter the number of terms:-
15
The first 15 terms of fibonnaci series are:-
1
1
2
3
5
8
13
21
34
55
89
144
233
377
610
```
