Identities for Generalized Fibonacci Numbers: A Combinatorial Approach
Plaza, A.; Falcon, S.
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v39 n4 p563-566 Jun 2008
This note shows a combinatorial approach to some identities for generalized Fibonacci numbers. While it is a straightforward task to prove these identities with induction, and also by arithmetical manipulations such as rearrangements, the approach used here is quite simple to follow and eventually reduces the proof to a counting problem. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
