Fibonacci Sequence

Other Fibonacci Sequences

Although the most famous Fibonacci sequence is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55..., a Fibonacci sequence may be any series of numbers in which each succeeding number (after the second) is the sum of the previous two. That means that the specific numbers in a Fibonacci series depend upon the initial numbers. Thus, if a series begins with 3, then the subsequent series would be as follows: 3, 3, 6, 9, 15, 24, 39, 63, 102, and so on.

A Fibonacci series can also be based on something other than an integer (a whole number). For example, the series 0.1, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.5, 0.8, 1.3, 2.1, 3.4, 5.5, and so on, is also a Fibonacci sequence.
