It's hard to tell what you're asking. Are you asking for a proof or explanation as to why this works? Or are you asking why it's necessary to check your solution afterwards?

It's hard to tell what your confusion is. For a line integral, you're integrating with respect to the curve. You only parameterize a curve with a single variable, so you wouldn't use $dx dy$.

@DantheMan Because it's just taking two numbers and adding them together. It's basically just the definition of the Fibonacci sequence.

@Tunk-Fey That's probably not the asker's issue, since he/she is getting 0 as a result.
