Fibonacci was a brilliant man. He actually invented something called the Fibonacci code. It starts like this: 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,233,377,610,987,1597,2584. It is an interminable code and nobody really works on it professionally because it is impossibly long. 'What do you have to do to solve it?' is probably what you are asking yourself, so i will tell you. You put down the number zero, then you put down the next consecutive number, which is one, and then you add the two. You take the answer of 0+1, which is one, and then put it as the next number in the code. Next you take the answer to the problem that you just solved, which is one, and add it to the number before it, one, then you have the next number in the code. You go on and on.
