C++ Program for Zeckendorf\’s Theorem (Non-Neighbouring Fibonacci Representation)
• Last Updated : 06 Dec, 2018

Given a number, find a representation of number as sum of non-consecutive Fibonacci numbers.

Examples:

```Input:  n = 10
Output: 8 2
8 and 2 are two non-consecutive Fibonacci Numbers
and sum of them is 10.

Input:  n = 30
Output: 21 8 1
21, 8 and 1 are non-consecutive Fibonacci Numbers
and sum of them is 30.
```

The idea is to use Greedy Algorithm.

```1) Let n be input number

2) While n >= 0
a) Find the greatest Fibonacci Number smaller than n.
Let this number be 'f'.  Print 'f'
b) n = n - f ```

Output:
```Non-neighbouring Fibonacci Representation of 30 is
21 8 1
```
