This forum topic will show my nerdy side (test your math skillz)

What no one knows about me is that I am actually very nerdy. I know of 2 awesome math problems. I want you to figure them out and why they are so interesting What is 111,111,111 x 111,111,111? Is there anything special about this sequence? What is it called? 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55 89 144 233 377 610 987 1597 2584 , etc. The second one is very tricky, so I will just say, only about the first 10 numbers are important.

The first one results in all ten digits in the right order, and the second is the Fibonacci series.

It's only nerdy if you know the link between the Fibonacci series and popcorn.

Haha wow. I didn't think anyone would get the second one on first try... Haha and what do you mean by the second sentence?
There is a link between the Fibonacci series and popcorn. And sunflowers. And leaves on stems.
