Fibonacci Sequence

Here is a very interesting mathematical concept to investigate... It also holds a clue to unlocking some valuable secrets on the island.


There is also a question to answer below relating to The Fibonacci Sequence :

edieval mathematician and businessman Fibonacci (Leonardo Pisano) posed the following problem in his treatise Liber Abaci (pub. 1202):
How many pairs of rabbits will be produced in a year, beginning with a single pair, if in every month each pair bears a new pair which becomes productive from the second month on?

Mr Woody - I did some investigating and the Fibonacci Sequence up to five digits are as follows:
1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, 2584, 4181, 6765, 10946...
Cool, huh. Took me ages to work out.
The Fibonacci Sequence is made by taking the first number (1) and adding the number before (0), which makes 1. You then do the same with the solution (1). So 1 + 1 = 2. 2 is the next number. After that you add 2 + 1 together to make 3, then 3 + 2 makes 5, then 5 + 3 makes 8, and so on...

Groovy, OtherONe. Check out the info about how it relates to spirals found that recur in nature.

Why is there a bunny?

Very interesting good work other boy. Mr Woody I need to have a chat with you tomorrow. Good question Winged Hussar why is there a bunny?

The Other Boy said...

There is a bunny because that relates to the question of the fibonacci sequence:
"How many pairs of rabbits will be produced in a year, beginning with a single pair, if in every month each pair bears a new pair which becomes productive from the second month on?"

oh yeah... I'm not very observant.
If you haven't looked at my return to Matainui island blog make sure you do and leave some feedback

Sounds like a quiz! This must be very good for our minds to develop.
