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

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.

There is a link between the Fibonacci series and popcorn. And sunflowers. And leaves on stems.

Pick a leaf on a stem, a seed in the face of a sunflower, or on a corn-cob, and count along the spiral to the next leaf/seed/kernel and the number you count to will be on the Fibonacci series.

Sorry - I thought you'd appreciate an extra layer of nerdiness on top of your own. Go try it on your maths teacher - I bet they won't know it.

I must be retarted. It sounded so simple to you. What should I try? The first or second one?

The first one is more than that, it's palindromic. And, yes, Fibonacci is much more than a cool sequence.

What is 111,111,111 x 111,111,111?
It's either 111,111,111, or 11,111,111,000,000,000
I'm not sure though.
