Python Program to Check if a number is FIbonacci

Jan 11, 2018
In Fibonacci Sequence, every previous two numbers gives the next number.

the first 10 Fibonacci numbers: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 35

In this python Program we will see how to test if a number given by user belongs to the Fibonacci sequence.

If the given number is n then any of 5n*n + 4 or 5n*n - 4 or both should be a perfect square to be a Fibonacci number.

Python Code:

import math

def CheckPerfect(x):
  i = int(math.sqrt(x))
  return (x == i*i)

def CheckFibo(n):
  if(CheckPerfect(5*n*n + 4) or CheckPerfect(5*n*n - 4)):
    print("Not Fibonacci")

CheckFibo(89) #this returns true, 89 is Fibonacci
