Fibonacci was most famous for his contribution to mathematics, specifically the Fibonacci sequence. The Fibonacci Sequence is as follows: Start with the numbers 0 and 1, add them together you get 1, then add 1 and 1 together you get 2, then add 2 and 1 together you get 3 then add 3 and 2, 5, then 5 and 3, 8, then 8 and 5, 13 and soon below is all the Fibonacci numbers up to 233, 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233... In other words each number is a result of the two previous numbers added together. The significance of this is that the higher you get in the sequence, you can divide a number and its previous number and that will give you a number close to the golden ratio (a special number that is used very frequently in mathematics, usually designated by the Greek letter "φ").



Fibonacci, or Leonard of Pisa, was perhaps the western world's most exalted mathematician of the middle ages. He is best known nowadays for the discovery of the Fibonacci Series, a series that occurs frequently throughout nature. In this series, every new number is the result of the sum of the previous two numbers NONE OF UR BUSSINESS WEIRDOS GO RED SOMTING ELSE THIS WEBSITE SUCKS!
