Forget the mistaken idea that an answer in math is simply right or wrong. We are to learn to think mathematically and concentrate on the process.

If n is the nth term in the Fibonacci Sequence and n+1 is the nth plus one term, Then as n goes to infinity, the ratio of n+1/n converges to the Golden Ratio. We also found that this is the case with the Lucas Sequence.

Under current investigation is the question of what types of numbers must be our first and second term in the sequence for this surprising property to hold. That is, does always hold when the first terms are positive integers? integers in general? rationals? irrationals? transcendentals?

Ask a programmer about these questions, they are exploring some good stuff!
