Phindings in the (Phi)Bonacci Sequence: Powers of the Golden Number

Phibonacci, or actually, Fibonacci, was a man once known as Leonardo of Pisa in Italy around the 13th century A.D. Today we know this name, and the associated Greek letter ø or “Phi”, in relation to the spiraling sequence of numbers that form a ‘golden spiral’. I recently learned there are silver and bronze spirals as well, but this article will only be focusing on the Golden Ratio, Phi, and the Fibonacci sequence. Phi has a few interesting properties, one of them being what happens when you ‘square’ it, which simply means multiplying it by itself; which when happens, equals one plus itself, or 2.618… But what about the cube of Phi, (Phi x Phi x Phi)? Or how about Phi to the fourth power, and so forth… As it turns out, the Fibonacci sequence is hidden in these mathematical expressions, it’s just not…

Fibonacci Fun


Here are some illustrations by myself and others, dealing with the Fibonacci sequence and the Golden Number, Phi. A few months ago, I noticed the exponents of Phi encode the Fibonacci sequence.  Share98Pin7TweetShare1106 Shares
