Non Fibonacci Numbers

• Difficulty Level : Medium
• Last Updated : 10 Mar, 2021

Given a positive integer n, the task is to print the n’th non Fibonacci number. The Fibonacci numbers are defined as:

Fib(0) = 0
Fib(1) = 1
for n >1, Fib(n) = Fib(n-1) + Fib(n-2)

First few Fibonacci numbers are 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 141, ……..
Examples :

Input : n = 2
Output : 6

Input : n = 5
Output : 10

Recommended: Please solve it on “PRACTICE” first, before moving on to the solution.

A naive solution is to find find Fibonacci numbers and then print first n numbers not present in the found Fibonacci numbers.
A better solution is to use the formula of Fibonacci numbers and keep adding of gap between two consecutive Fibonacci numbers. Value of sum of gap is count of non-fibonacci numbers seen so far. Below is implementation of above idea.

C++

// C++ program to find n'th Fibonacci number
#include<bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;

// Returns n'th Non-Fibonacci number
int nonFibonacci(int n)
{
// curr is to keep track of current fibonacci
// number, prev is previous, prevPrev is
// previous of previous.
int prevPrev=1, prev=2, curr=3;

// While count of non-fibonacci numbers
// doesn't become negative or zero
while (n > 0)
{
// Simple Fibonacci number logic
prevPrev = prev;
prev = curr;
curr = prevPrev + prev;

// (curr - prev - 1) is count of
// non-Fibonacci numbers between curr
// and prev.
n = n - (curr - prev - 1);
}

// n might be negative now. Make sure it
// becomes positive by removing last added
// gap.
n = n + (curr - prev - 1);

// n must be now positive and less than or equal
// to gap between current and previous, i.e.,
// (curr - prev - 1);

// Now add the positive n to previous Fibonacci
// number to find the n'th non-fibonacci.
return prev + n;
}

// Driver code
int main()
{
cout << nonFibonacci(5);
return 0;
}

// curr is to keep track of
// current fibonacci number,
// prev is previous, prevPrev
// is previous of previous.
int prevPrev = 1, prev = 2, curr = 3;

// While count of non-fibonacci
// numbers doesn't become
// negative or zero
while (n > 0)
{
// Simple Fibonacci number logic
prevPrev = prev;
prev = curr;
curr = prevPrev + prev;

// (curr - prev - 1) is count
// of non-Fibonacci numbers
// between curr and prev.
n = n - (curr - prev - 1);
}

// n might be negative now. Make
// sure it becomes positive by
n = n + (curr - prev - 1);

// n must be now positive and less
// than or equal to gap between
// current and previous, i.e.,
// (curr - prev - 1);

// Now add the positive n to
// previous Fibonacci number
// to find the n'th non-fibonacci.
return prev + n;
}
