# Fibonacci Thief!

**Leonardo Pisano****, known as Fibonacci, **was an Italian mathematician, considered to be the **m**ost talented mathematician of the Middle Ages. One of Leonardo's m**a**thematical formulas that he is most famous for is **t**he *Fibonacci Sequence.*

The *Fibonacci Sequence* is calculated by the fact t**h**at every number after the first two is the sum of the two preceding numbers:

### 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144

1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144

### For example - 144=89+55 OR 34=21+13

For example - 144=89+55 OR 34=21+13

This formula isn't just used in math, either! It is seen in many things around you - from the arrangement of leaves on a tree, to the way sunflower seeds are laid out on the flower!

### Okay - so the math lesson is over! We have an emergency on our hands! There's been a robbery! Someone has stolen some of the Fibonacci numbers from our school's Math classrooms! ...and it's up to YOU to bring them back! Can you help?? Please solve the problems below to help bring back those numbers!
