Interesting Numbers

The Fibonacci sequence is one of the most widely used sequences when introducing the concept of sequences. The sequence is defined as the following: FN = FN – 1 + FN – 2 So, starting with F0 = 0 and F1 = 1, the first few Fibonacci numbers are 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, … and so on. An interesting thing to note about the Fibonacci sequence is that the ratio of one Fib number to its predecessor…

Who would have guessed such interesting characteristics could come of this sequence? I am inspired by John Conway’s insight into things as simple as this basic sequence. See the video below:
