Challenge Team Abstract
The Fibonacci sequence is a well-known set of numbers starting with 1. This sequence of numbers occurs frequently in nature, from the arrangement of seeds on a flower head to the expansion of branches of a tree. If undisturbed in the wild, rabbits would reproduce in pairs mimicking the Fibonacci sequence. Pinecones grow in numbers of spirals that are also part of the Fibonacci sequence.
The objective of this project will be to compose a program that will accurately model the growth of a tree or of a rabbit population in a given amount of time. The equation used to determine this will most likely be f(n)=(1+5)/2-(1-5)/2. The only variables included should be the time period simulated.
