This C Program prints the fibonacci of a given number using recursion. In fibonacci series, each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. Eg: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, …

The following program returns the nth number entered by user residing in the fibonacci series.

The following program returns the nth number entered by user residing in the fibonacci series.

Here is the source code of the C program to print the nth number of a fibonacci number. The C program is successfully compiled and run on a Linux system. The program output is also shown below.
