“Leonardo Fibonacci was just a young boy living in Italy during the middle ages when he began to obsess over numbers. People often referred to him as a blockhead due to his tendency to daydream.

As Leonardo grew older and traveled the world, he was fascinated by the myriad of ways in which different nations expressed numerical values. After that, he had the epiphany that many things in nature, such as the number of petals on a flower or the spiral of a nautilus shell, appear to adhere to a particular pattern.

The young man who was made fun of for being dense had actually uncovered what would later be called the Fibonacci Sequence.”
