FibbanaciT values are found thus: Take a grid of width W. T_n = 1 + 4w(1 + w + n) #2 20050216 08:37:42
Re: FibbanaciThe Fibonacci sequence follows the simple rule of adding the previous two numbers to get the next. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #3 20050216 22:46:58
Re: FibbanaciYes That is the general idea. But i want to prove that is the case for any value of W. Any ideas? Thanks very much for taking the time to think about this. #5 20050217 14:43:16
Re: FibbanaciPatience, visualbenjie, I have had many things to deal with today, and will need time to sit and think the proof (jeez, you could give me an easy one I could answer directly!)

Re: FibbanaciOK, I believe we can look at the problem like this: we want to know the difference between two successive nvalues for any w (this difference will be the "D" value mentioned in your questiom) "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."

Re: FibbanaciThank you very much! That is a great help. I really appriciate it. Thanks
