Solution Is it this simple? | Comment 1 of 2
Aren't any two consecutive terms of the series relatively prime?

Certainly the first few are.  And if you add two relatively prime numbers their sum will be relatively prime to each of the summands.
So inductively, all consecutive terms of Fibonacci are relative primes.

The answer is 1.
