# Length of longest Fibonacci subarray formed by removing only one element

• Last Updated : 24 May, 2021

Given an array A containing integers, the task is to find the length of longest Fibonacci subarray formed by removing only one element from the array.
Examples:

Input: arr[] = { 2, 8, 5, 7, 3, 5, 7 }
Output:
Explanation:
If we remove the number 7 at index 3, then the remaining array contains a Fibonacci subarray {2, 8, 5, 3, 5} of length 5, which is maximum.
Input: arr[] = { 2, 3, 6, 1 }
Output:
Explanation:
If we remove the number 6 at index 2, then the remaining array contains a Fibonacci subarray {2, 3, 1} of length 3, which is maximum.

Approach: The above-mentioned problem can be solved by counting the contiguous Fibonacci numbers just before every index and just after every index.

1. Now traverse the array again and find an index for which counts of Fibonacci numbers after and before is maximum.
2. In order to check for Fibonacci numbers, we will build a hash table containing all the Fibonacci numbers less than or equal to the maximum value in the array to test a number in O(1) time.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
