What is a Fibonacci Sequence?
Fibonacci sequence is an infinite series of numbers that can be found in nature and mathematics. It begins with 0 and 1 and proceeds as follows:
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13
Why is the Fibonacci Sequence so Popular?
Fibonacci sequence is a sequence of integers where each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. It's named after Italian mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci (1170-1250) and it's often used as a model for growth in nature.
A common misconception is that the Fibonacci sequence was actually created by Fibonacci himself. While many believe that the Fibonacci sequence was actually created by Fibonacci himself, the true creator of the sequence is still unknown. This sequence has been around since before Fibonacci was born and has been used in various fields, such as mathematics, architecture, engineering for calculating numbers, ratios, and other mathematical equations.
How Did the Fibonacci Sequence Begin?
Most of us know that the Fibonacci sequence was popularized in the 13th century. It's named after the Italian mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci.
However, we don't know how did the sequence start. Some research point to ancient Hindu and Persian mathematicians who might be the originators of this sequence.
