# Calculate Fibonacci Series in Java

Carvia Tech | April 30, 2019 | 1 min read | 20 views

Fibonacci series is series of natural number where next number is equivalent to the sum of previous two number e.g.

The first two numbers of Fibonacci series is always 1, 1.

First 10 numbers in fibonacci series are:

1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55

## Iterative approach

Java program to calculate and print Fibonacci number using Iterations logic is shown below:

Basically on each iteration, we are assigning second number to the first and assigning the sum of last two numbers to the second.

```
void fibonacci(int count) {
int prevNumber = 0;
int nextNumber = 1;
System.out.println("Fibonacci Series " + count + ":");
for (int i = 1; i <= count; ++i) {
int fib = prevNumber + nextNumber;
prevNumber = nextNumber;
nextNumber = fib;
System.out.print(prevNumber + " ");
}
}
```

## Recursive approach

We can use *tail recursion* to calculate fibonacci series in Java.

```
int fibonacci(int num) {
if (num == 1 || num == 2) {
return 1;
```**(1)**
}
return fibonacci(num - 1) + fibonacci(num - 2); **(2)**
}
