# What are some interesting facts about Fibonacci?

Italian mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci is known for the Fibonacci number sequence. This sequence is calculated when you add the previous two numbers in the series to calculate the following number. For example 0,1,2,3,5,8,13,21 and so on. He introduced a new way to write fractions by replacing quotations with the center bar that separates the numerator from the denominator. Fibonacci's math concepts have been used by Forex traders all over the world to anticipate the fluctuation in the forex charts. He authored six books, one titled Liber Abaci, which introduced a new number system. This number system was demonstrated using interest calculations, accounting, conversion of weight and measurement and other functions.
