Homework Help: Pre-Calc

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, September 11, 2011 at 6:18pm.

Find three examples of the Fibonacci sequence in nature. Write a paragraph for each example. For each example, address the following questions:

How does the example relate to the Fibonacci sequence?
What portions of each item or situation display the Fibonacci sequence?
How could the Fibonacci sequence help you solve a problem involving the item or situation?


I was thinking about writing about a pine cone, a a seed head on a sunflower or something similar, and the petals on a flower that has three, five, etc petals. I fell that when I am addressing the first question, I would be answering as well because in the first question I would mention the amount of petals or something and then in the second question I would say that the petals display the Fibonacci Sequence. That makes sense, right? What I'm not sure about is the last question. How would I answer it?
