what is the fibonacci sequence and what is its relationship to the golden ratio?
https://www.google.com/search?q=fibonacci+golden+ratio
Many websites here that can help you  especially the very first one from mathforum.org.
=)
The Fibonacci sequence begins
1,1,2,3,5,8,13,...
Each term after the second 1 is the sum of the previous two terms.
The golden number (or ratio) is (1+sqrt(5))/2 and is approxximately 1.6180339
The relationship of the Fibonacci sequence to the golden number is that if you take the ratio of the nth term/(n1)th term as n increases the limit of the ratio is the golden number. Thus in the sequence given above, consider the sequence of terms
2/1, 3/2, 5/3, 8/5, 13/8,...
That sequence of ratios of Fib. terms converges to the golden number. The last term , 13/8, is approx 1.625 Each term after that gets closer and closer to the gold. ratio.
i can't finish this h.w . because i can't find the factorzation for 293 and the h.w is due tomorrow!
293 is prime
test the divisor 2,3,5,7,11,13 and 17 to prove this.
