C++ Program to Display Fibonacci Series

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

To understand this example, you should have the knowledge of following C++ programming topics:

The Fibonacci sequence is a series where the next term is the sum of pervious two terms. The first two terms of the Fibonacci sequence is 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;
}

Output

Enter the number of terms: 10
Fibonacci Series: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 

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;
}

Output

Enter a positive integer: 100
Fibonacci Series: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89,
