The Fibonacci number is famous for possessing wonderful and amazing properties. In this study, we introduce the k-Fibonacci-Like number and related identities. We establish some of the interesting properties of k-Fibonacci-Like number. We shall use the Induction method and Binet’s formula for derivation.
