### How do you check whether a given number n is a Fibonacci number or not?

In a Fibonacci sequence, sum of two successive terms gives the
third term....
here is the Fibonacci sequence:
0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144........
General formula to generate a Fibonacci sequence is """Fn= Fn-1
+ Fn-2"""
To check whether a number is Fibonacci or not follow the
following steps:
1) Get the number as input from user.
2) Fix the first two numbers of sequence as 0 and 1.
3) put a sentinel loop with upper limit being the input
number.
4)in the body of loop generate the next number in sequence in
each iteration and continue swapping the values as follows:
a=0
b=1
next=a+b
while (next< input)
a=b
b=next
next=a+b wend
5) lastly when program exits the loop compare the last number of
sequence with the input number
if they are equal then number is Fibonacci otherwise not.
otherwise the last term of sequence will be less than the input
number.

### How did Fibonacci get his idea for the Fibonacci Sequence?

The Fibonacci Sequence itself was not CREATED by
Leonardo of Pisa (more commonly known as Leonardo Fibonacci
or simply Fibonacci). He is credited to the introduction of the
sequence to the western world, (Hence the name "The Fibonacci
Sequence"); however origins of the Fibonacci can be traced back
to 200BC. *TJB*
