Fibonacci studied the pattern of population growth of rabbits which led to the discovery of the series and then went on to study its existence in many things in nature
Applications in everyday life

The conclusion that i want to make is that whenever we are encountered with any challenge (Don’t call them Problems) then we need to take a good look at the challenge and we will see a pattern. If we are able to see the pattern then it becomes easy to create a solution to that problem.
