By: Sophia Fibonacci Sequence What is it? The Fibonacci sequence is a sequence of numbers which every number equals the sum of the two numbers before it. Leonardo Fibonacci Leonardo Fibonacci was born around 1170 in Pisa. He was an Italian mathematician. His father Guglielmo Bonacci was a kind of customs officer who helped ship wax candles off to France.

This meant that Leonardo spent a lot of time in North Africa. Gaining a North African education. Later he went to the Mediterranean. He probably met with merchants and learned their systems of arithmetic. He later learned that there are many advantages of the same system. How does it work? The Fibonacci sequence works by starting with 2 numbers. The third number must be the first 2 numbers sum. The fourth number must be the sum of the second and third number, and so on. What will be the next term? 21 and 34 are the next two terms. Therefore the next

term in the pattern would be 55. Interesting Information was inspired by 2 rabbits. If the 2 rabbits breed you would have 3 rabbits. Then if those ones breed you'll have 5 and so on

Who Created it? Leonardo Fibonacci created it in 1202. 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34 =1 =2 =3 =5 =8 =13 =21 =34 21+34= 55
