Advertisements

## Problem Description:

How to use method for calculating Fibonacci series?

## Solution:

This example shows the way of using method for calculating Fibonacci Series upto n numbers.

public class MainClass { public static long fibonacci(long number) { if ((number == 0) || (number == 1)) return number; else return fibonacci(number - 1) + fibonacci(number - 2); } public static void main(String[] args) { for (int counter = 0; counter <= 10; counter++){ System.out.printf("Fibonacci of %d is: %d\n", counter, fibonacci(counter)); } } }

## Result:

The above code sample will produce the following result.

Fibonacci of 0 is: 0 Fibonacci of 1 is: 1 Fibonacci of 2 is: 1 Fibonacci of 3 is: 2 Fibonacci of 4 is: 3 Fibonacci of 5 is: 5 Fibonacci of 6 is: 8 Fibonacci of 7 is: 13 Fibonacci of 8 is: 21 Fibonacci of 9 is: 34 Fibonacci of 10 is: 55
