Most of us are familiar with the Fibonacci Sequence. This sequence is generated by starting with 2 numbers, 1 & 1 and generating the new terms by adding 2 previous terms.
The sequence thus generated looks like
You will notice that we started with two numbers 1 & 1.
The new number is 1 + 1 = 2. The sequence thus becomes 1, 1, 2.
The next number is 2 + 1 = 3. The sequence thus becomes 1, 1, 2, 3.
The next number is 3 + 2 = 5. The sequence thus becomes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5.
So what is peculiar about 1/89 & this sequence?
Here goes. Lets add up the numbers of this sequence in manner shown below:
So, the sum looks like 0.0112359...
Now, just fire up the calculator on your computer & find out what 1/89 turns out to be.
Well, it turns out to be 0.0112359...
