## Introduction

This C program calculates the Nth Fibonacci number using recursion. The Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers in which each number is the sum of the two preceding ones. The program uses a recursive function to calculate the Nth Fibonacci number.

## Problem statement

Write a C program to find the Nth Fibonacci number using recursion.

## C Program to Find Nth Fibonacci Number using Recursion

#include <stdio.h> int fibonacci(int n) { if (n <= 1) return n; else return fibonacci(n - 1) + fibonacci(n - 2); } int main() { int n; printf("Enter the value of N: "); scanf("%d", &n); int result = fibonacci(n); printf("The %dth Fibonacci number is: %d\n", n, result); return 0; }

## How it works

- The program defines a function
`fibonacci()`

that takes an integer`n`

as a parameter and returns the Nth Fibonacci number. - In the
`fibonacci()`

function, there is a base case where if`n`

is less than or equal to 1, it returns`n`

itself (0 for n=0 and 1 for n=1). - For values of
`n`

greater than 1, the function recursively calls itself with`n-1`

and`n-2`

, and adds the results to get the Fibonacci number. - In the
`main()`

function, the user is prompted to enter the value of`N`

. - The
`scanf()`

function is used to read the input value from the user and store it in the variable`n`

. - The
`fibonacci()`

function is called with the input value`n`

to calculate the Nth Fibonacci number. - The result is then printed on the console.
