To sum up…

To sum up…

Fibonacci Day celebrates the Fibonacci Sequence, not invented but popularised by Leonardo of Pisa, also known as… you guessed it… Fibonacci.

The sequence is pretty funky and used widely in computing language, although I can’t tell you how as I have no idea, no time to find out and no interest anyway, but the pattern is that each number is the sum of the previous two, ergo:

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 989, 1599, all the way up to the biggest possible number in mathematics: one hundred trillion and twenty-seven, times a billion.

Thanks, Fibonacci, I honestly don’t know what I’d do on a daily basis without you.
