This story took place in Chee, a little town in which lived a
wizard that provided the villagers with good fortune. In
exchange of this fortune, the people of Chee and the Pied
Pipper gave him food.
One day, the Pied Pipper didn´t give food to the wizard and
he became angry with the people.
The wizard cast a spell and soon some rabbits appeared in
Amanda, a young girl discovered that the amount of
rabbits increased every day in a special succesion.
When Amanda told this information to the wizard, he gave
Amanda a magic flute.
With this flute the girl could scare rabbits to another place.
Amanda went to the place in which the rabbits were and
she began to play the instrument and all the rabbits
followed her and in this way they disappeared and the town
of Chee was again free of rabbits.
In mathematics the Fibonacci Sequence are the
numbers in the following integer sequence.
1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144…
Or (often, in modern usage)
0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144..
By definition, the first two numbers in the
Fibonacci sequence are 1 and 1, or 0 and 1,
depending on the chosen starting point of the
sequence, and each subsequent number is the
sum of the previous two.
In mathematical terms, the sequence Fn of Fibonacci
numbers is defined by the recurrence relation.
Fn = Fn -1 + Fn -2
With seed values
F1 = 1, F2 = 1
F0 = 0, F1 = 1
Leonardo Pisano Bigollo (c. 1170 – c. 1250)
was an Italian mathematician, considered by some "the
most talented western mathematician of the Middle
Fibonacci is best known to the modern world for the
spreading of the Hindu–Arabic numeral system in
Europe, primarily through his composition in 1202 of
Liber Abaci (Book of Calculation), and for a number
sequence named the Fibonacci numbers after him,
which he did not discover but used as an example in
the Liber Abaci.
THE FIBONACCI SEQUENCE
Look at any plant -tomato,strawberry or
pineapple -, count the number of petals,or
the way the leaves are arranged. You will
find them set out in pairs, threes, fives,
eights, or thirteens, but never four.
