Fibonacci’s Sequence

Corey Hom 723

Fibonacci was born in Pisa, Italy 1175. His real name was Leonardo Pisano or
Leonardo of Pisa. His name came from being born in Pisa. In his life, his father, whom
traveled often for business, traveled with his father too. Therefore, he was exposed to
many different mathematical equations, algebra, geometry, and such. Afterwards, he
wrote a book called “Liber Abaci”. This was used to introduce Arabic numerals into
Europe. Fibonacci’s accomplishments in life were; becoming a mathematician, the
Fibonacci sequence, and introducing the Arabic numerals to Europe.
Fibonacci’s contribution to math was the Fibonacci sequence. The sequence was 1, 1,
2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144... Etc. Each number mentioned previously was added to
the following number. Fibocanni’s sequence was found in a famous problem known. “If a
pair of rabbits was put into a room to breed, how many rabbits will there be after a year if
it is assumed that every month each pair produces a new pair, which begins to bear young
two months after its own birth?” He also introduced the Arabic numerals system which
was the decimal system, basing on ten digits, the number zero, and the decimal point.
