What is the fibonacci sequence?

Conclusion

After studying the golden ratio and the fibonacci sequence I have realised how they are pretty much the same thing. The golden ratio creates a perfect spiral, and to draw/create a perfect spiral you also need to use the fibonacci sequence.

After studying this project in school I have discovered that there is a link that I have discovered by writing out a table of the fibonacci sequence up to 6765 and the ratio between successive terms. The higher the fibonacci sequence goes, the closer the ratio of one number to the next gets to the golden ratio. However we will never be able to get the exact number of the golden ratio because the golden ratio is an endless number.

Nature uses the golden ratio to create the perfect spiral.

A real number that The golden ratio is a number that cannot be written as a simple fraction – the decimal goes on forever without repeating.The golden ratio is a special number approximately equal to 1.618The golden ratio =1.6180339887

What is the golden ratio?

The Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers where a number is found by adding up the two numbers before it. Starting with 0 and 1, the sequence goes 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, etc. Fibonacci numbers do actually appear in nature, from sunflowers to hurricanes to galaxies. Sunflowers seeds, for example, are arranged in a Fibonacci spiral, keeping the seeds uniformly distributed no matter how large the seed head may be.
