%N GCD of all sums of n consecutive Fibonacci numbers.

%C Early on in the Posamentier & Lehmann (2007) book, the fact that the sum of any ten consecutive Fibonacci numbers is a multiple of 11 is presented as an interesting property of the Fibonacci numbers. Much later in the book a proof of this fact is given, using arithmetic modulo 11. An alternative proof could demonstrate that 11F(n + 6) = sum_{i = n .. n + 9} F(i).

%e a(3) = 2 because all sums of three consecutive Fibonacci numbers are divisible by 2 (F(n) + F(n-1) + F(n-2) = 2F(n)), but since the GCD of 3 + 5 + 8 = 16 and 5 + 8 + 13 = 26 is 2, no number larger than 2 divides all sums of three consecutive Fibonacci numbers.

%e a(4) = 1 because the GCD of 1 + 1 + 2 + 3 = 7 and 1 + 2 + 3 + 5 = 11 is 1, so the sums of four consecutive Fibonacci numbers have no factors in common.

%Y Cf. A000071, sum of the first n Fibonacci numbers. Cf. also A229339.

%Y Bisections give: A005013 (even part), A131534 (odd part). - _Alois P. Heinz_, Mar 18 2012

%Y Sums of m consecutive Fibonacci numbers: A055389 (m = 3, ignoring the initial 1); A000032 (m = 4, these are the Lucas numbers); A013655 (m = 5); A022087 (m = 6); A022096 (m = 7); A022379 (m = 8).
