The Fibonacci numbers can be rather simply
defined by the following:
More formally: [F1=1; F2=2], [F3=3], [Fn=Fn-1+Fn-2]. The resulting sequence begins like this:
F(0)=0, F(1)=1, F(n)=F(n-1)+F(n-2) for n>1.

Leonardo Fibonacci was born around 1170 to GuglielmoBonacci, a wealthy Italian merchant. Guglielmo directed a trading post (by some accounts he was the consultant for Pisa) in Bugia, a port east of Algiers in the Almohaddynasty’s sultanate in North Africa(now Bejaia, Algeria). As a young boy, Leonardo traveled with him to help; it was there he learned about the Hindu–Arabic numeral system.
The Fibonacci numbers are Nature\'s numbering system. They appear everywhere in Nature, from the leaf arrangement in plants, to the pattern of the florets of a flower, the bracts of a pinecone, or the scales of a pineapple. The Fibonacci numbers are therefore applicable to the growth of every living thing, including a single cell, a grain of wheat, a hive of bees, and even all of mankind.
In the case of tapered pinecones or pineapples, we see a double set of spirals – one going in a clockwise direction and one in the opposite direction. When these spirals are counted, the two sets are found to be adjacent Fibonacci numbers.
As well, many flowers have a Fibonacci number of petals. Some, like this rose, also have Fibonacci Spiral, petal arrangements.
Branching plants also exhibit Fibonacci numbers. Again, this design provides the best physical accommodation for the number of branches, while maximizing sun exposure
