arithmetic systems. Leonardo Fibonacci's own discoveries made significant contributions to mathematics.
(c. 1170 – c. 1250)
The Fibonacci Sequence originated from a contest by Emperor Frederick II in 1225 about counting rabbits. Starting with a pair of rabbits, every month, every pair of rabbits who are over a month old gives birth to a new pair of rabbits. The contest was to find how many rabbits on a specified month.
The Sequence Itself
F1 = F2 = 1
Fn = Fn-1 + Fn-2 (n>2)
The first two of the sequence are 1's. The next number is found by adding the two numbers before it.
Not Just Rabbits
The Fibonacci Sequence may be one of the most famous coincidences. Not only is it just a bunch of numbers after a comma, people have found the sequence to be applied everywhere.
Fibonacci's Legacy
Fibonacci brought great conveniences in math,science, and art. If it weren't for him, we would be still writing in Roman Numerals. In the old days, simple arithmetic was difficult. People had to count with an abacus. Instead, Fibonacci brought a new computing method with written algorithms which were way more efficient.
