The Fibonacci Sequence
is formed by adding the latest two numbers to get the
    next one, starting from 0 and 1:

 0 1 --the series starts like this.
 0+1=1 so the series is now
 011
  1+1=2 so the series continues...
 0 1 1 2 and the next term is
    1+2=3 so we now have
 0 1 1 2 3 and it continues as follows ...
