- The Fibonacci sequence was created by Leonardo de Fibonacci de Pisa.
- Fibonacci, whose real name was Leonardo Pisano Bigollo was an Italian Mathematician that lived during the Medieval Period.
- The series was originally created as a solution to a problem about rabbits. The problem was if a newborn pair of rabbits requires one month to mature and every month then to reproduce itself, how many pairs will one have at the end of the number of months. The answer to the problem is "un" and it was based upon the equation: un+1=un+un-1.
- The sequence of the Fibonacci numbers is 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 59, 144, 233, and 377, and so on to infinity.
- The calculation takes the sum of the two numbers and adds it to the second number in the addition. For example: 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5, 3+5=8, 8+5=13 and so on.
- The sequence requires a minimum of eight calculations (that's an octave).
