They will always follow some Fibonacci sequence. If P and Q are any two numbers, then they belong to the Fibonacci sequence with the first two numbers as P and (Q-P).

How would one describe a Fibonacci number?

A Fibonacci number, Fibonacci sequence or Fibonacci series are a mathematical term which follow a integer sequence. The first two numbers in Fibonacci sequence start with a 0 and 1 and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two.

How is sequences in maths related to other subjects?

A few examples: Counting numbers are an arithmetic sequence. Radioactive decay, (uncontrolled) bacterial growth follow geometric sequences. The Fibonacci sequence is widespread in nature.

What is the Fibonacci like sequence?

Well a like sequence would follow the same rule as the sequence itself: Each number (after the first two) is the sum of the previous two numbers. Thus the sequence begins 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, etc. The higher up in the sequence, the closer two consecutive "Fibonacci numbers" of the sequence divided by each other will approach the golden ratio (approximately 1 : 1.618 or 0.618 : 1).

What is the difference between an arithmetic series and an arithmetic sequence?

An arithmetic sequence is a list of numbers which follow a rule. A series is the sum of a sequence of numbers.

Does the milky way follow Fibonacci sequence?

"Follow the Fibonacci sequence" is shorthand for "this is all new agey claptrap and I have nothing useful to say". I don't know what you mean when you ask this question, exactly. But, sure, I'm sure that with only a small amount of fudging you could somehow force the data to fit whatever you want it to.

How do you check whether a given number n is a Fibonacci number or not?

In a Fibonacci sequence, sum of two successive terms gives the third term.... here is the Fibonacci sequence: 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144........ General formula to generate a Fibonacci sequence is """Fn= Fn-1 + Fn-2""" To check whether a number is Fibonacci or not follow the following steps: 1) Get the number as input from user. 2) Fix the first two numbers of sequence as 0 and 1. 3) put a sentinel loop with upper limit being the input number. 4)in the body of loop generate the next number in sequence in each iteration and continue swapping the values as follows: a=0 b=1 next=a+b while (next< input) a=b b=next next=a+b wend 5) lastly when program exits the loop compare the last number of sequence with the input number if they are equal then number is Fibonacci otherwise not. otherwise the last term of sequence will be less than the input number.
