The fibonacci numbers are a sequence where the firswt two terms are both 1. Subsequent terms are generated by finding the sum of the 2 previous terms. The sequence is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, ... N is the number of term and F(n) is the value of that term. Proportion is two ratios that are equal to each other. The quadratic formula is the formula to determine the root of a quadratic equation from its coefficient. To figure out the equal of the proportion you need to cross multiply to figure out the answer. The golden ratio is used to find the proportion of height to width when laying out test or illustrations.
