This paper focuses on developing a strategy to represent a new Fibonacci identities using James abacus. The idea of Graphical chain with respect to the beta numbers and abacus was established to count the number of ways to tile a James diagram chain inscribed in finite grid. Then, the idea of chain abacus and beta numbers were used to find new identities of Fibonacci number

Keywords: James abacus, Beta Number, Fibonacci number, Tile, Chain
