# Fibonacci Numbers, an exciting number sequence!

The Fibonacci Number Sequence is a number sequence that creates a beautiful pattern. The sequence starts with 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34… and so on! The number sequence was first introduced to Western European Mathematics by Leonardo Pisano in 1202 (Anirudh (2015 )). The sequence was also named after Leonardo as he was also known as Fibonacci.  Before his finding of The Fibonacci Number Sequence, he studied the Hindu-Arabic Arithmetic system as he was growing up in North Africa.

Now how do we work the pattern of the sequence?

Easy!

All we have to do is add the two numbers before together in order to identify the next number in the sequence.e.g. –> 0+1 = 1, 1+1=2, 1+2=3, 2+3=5 etc. We now then take the answers to our simple calculations and form a number sequence: 0,1,1,2,3,5…

The Fibonacci Sequence doesn’t quite sop there… we can transfer the sequence into a spiral! By drawing squares with the dimensions of the numbers, a spiral can be formed. E,J. Hom (2013)
