## nth Term of Fibonacci Series in Python

An interesting feature of **Fibonacci numbers** is that ratio of consecutive Fibonacci numbers is equal to **1.618**, also known as the **Golden Ratio**.

def elementInFibonacciSeriesAtPosition(enteredPosition): a, b = 0, 1 fibonacciNumbers = [] while True: fibonacciNumbers.append(a) a, b = b, a+b if len(fibonacciNumbers) == enteredPosition: print(fibonacciNumbers.pop()) break elementInFibonacciSeriesAtPosition(11) # 55
