Program to find LCM of two Fibonnaci Numbers
  • Difficulty Level : Basic
  • Last Updated : 21 Feb, 2019

Given here are two positive numbers a and b. The task is to print the least common multiple of a’th and b’th Fibonacci Numbers.

The first few Fibonacci Numbers are 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, ……

Note that 0 is considered as 0’th Fibonacci Number.

Examples:

Input : a = 3, b = 12
Output : 144

Input : a = 8, b = 37
Output : 507314157

Approach: The simple solution of the problem is,

  1. Find the a’th fibonacci number.
  2. Find the b’th fibonacci number.
  3. Find their GCD, and with the help of the GCD find their LCM. The relation is LCM(a, b) = (a x b) / GCD(a, b) (Please refer here).

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

C++




// C++ Program to find LCM of Fib(a)
// and Fib(b)
#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
const int MAX = 1000;
  
// Create an array for memoization
int f[MAX] = { 0 };
  
// Function to return the n'th Fibonacci
// number using table f[].
int fib(int n)
{
    // Base cases
    if (n == 0)
        return 0;
    if (n == 1 || n == 2)
        return (f[n] = 1);
  
    // If fib(n) is already computed
    if (f[n])
        return f[n];
  
    int k = (n & 1) ? (n + 1) / 2 : n / 2;
  
    // Applying recursive formula
    // Note value n&1 is 1
    // if n is odd, else 0.
    f[n] = (n & 1) ? (fib(k) * fib(k) + fib(k - 1) * fib(k - 1))
                   : (2 * fib(k - 1) + fib(k)) * fib(k);
  
    return f[n];
}
  
// Function to return gcd of a and b
int gcd(int a, int b)
{
    if (a == 0)
        return b;
  
    return gcd(b % a, a);
}
  
// Function to return the LCM of
// Fib(a) and Fib(a)
int findLCMFibonacci(int a, int b)
{
    return (fib(a) * fib(b)) / fib(gcd(a, b));
}
  
// Driver code
int main()
{
    int a = 3, b = 12;
  
    cout << findLCMFibonacci(a, b);
  
    return 0;
}

    // if n is odd, else 0.
    if((n & 1 ) != 0)
        f[n] = (fib(k) * fib(k) + 
                fib(k - 1) * fib(k - 1));
    else
        f[n] = (2 * fib(k - 1) + 
                    fib(k)) * fib(k);
  
    return f[n];
}
