Binomial coefficients can be defined by
Edouard Lucas defined the Fibonomial coefficients analogously by
where Fj is the jth Fibonacci number.
Binomial coefficients satisfy
and Fibonomial coefficients satisfy an analogous identity
Incidentally, this identity can be used to show that Fibonomial coefficients are integers, which isn’t obvious from the definition.
