In fact, there are many unusual features of honeybees and in this section we will show how the Fibonacci numbers count a honeybee's ancestors in this section a "bee" will mean a "honeybee". This set of rectangles whose sides are two successive Fibonacci numbers in length and which are composed of squares with sides which are Fibonacci numbers, we will call the Fibonacci Rectangles. It is the same for the Family Tree of everyone alive in the world today. The spiral is not a true mathematical spiral since it is made up of fragments which are parts of circles and does not go on getting smaller and smaller but it is a good approximation to a kind of spiral that does appear often in nature. You do the maths What happens if we take the ratios the other way round i. Use your calculator and perhaps plot a graph of these ratios and see if anything similar is happening compared with the graph above. The Canterbury Puzzles , Dover , pages. Now can you see why this is the answer to our Rabbits problem? The one most of us know best is the honeybee and it, unusually, lives in a colony called a hive and they have an unusual Family Tree. In one of them he adapts Fibonacci's Rabbits to cows, making the problem more realistic in the way we observed above. So points on the spiral are 1. If so, what is it? Honeybees and Family trees There are over 30, species of bees and in most of them the bees live solitary lives. It is another collection like Amusements in Mathematics above but containing different puzzles arranged in sections: Arithmetical and Algebraic puzzles, Geometrical puzzles, Combinatorial and Topological puzzles, Game puzzles, Domino puzzles, match puzzles and "unclassified" puzzles. Here is a spiral drawn in the squares, a quarter of a circle in each square. You'll have spotted a fundamental property of this ratio when you find the limiting value of the new series! So it is a logical deduction that the population of the world must be getting smaller and smaller as time goes on! It is incorrect to say this is a Phi-spiral. Each of them also had two parents so how many great-grand-parents of yours will there be in your Tree? Full solutions and index. Let's look at the family tree of a male drone bee. Click on the pictures to enlarge them in a new window. How many parents does everyone have? Which do you think is the blood relative and which the relation because of marriage? Males are produced by the queen's unfertilised eggs, so male bees only have a mother but no father! Below are images of cross-sections of a Nautilus sea shell. Another view of the Rabbit's Family Tree:. Here we follow the convention of Family Trees that parents appear above their children , so the latest generations are at the bottom and the higher up we go, the older people are. We can get round this by saying that the female of each pair mates with any male and produces another pair. This is a better simplification of the problem and quite realistic now. The Family Tree of humans involves a different sequence to the Fibonacci Numbers. What is the pattern in this series of numbers? We can make another picture showing the Fibonacci numbers 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,.. Click on the picture to enlarge it in a new window. He gets round the problems by noticing that really, it is only the females that are interesting - er - I mean the number of females! Several organisations and companies have a logo based on this design, using the spiral of Fibonacci squares and sometime with the Nautilus shell superimposed. The spiral-in-the-squares makes a line from the centre of the spiral increase by a factor of the golden number in each square. Firstly the "spiral" is only an approximation as it is made up of separate and distinct quarter-circles; secondly the true spiral increases by a factor Phi every quarter-turn so it is more correct to call it a Phi 4 spiral. They show the spiral curve of the shell and the internal chambers that the animal using it adds on as it grows. Click on the logos to find out more about the organisations. Basin in Fibonacci Quarterly , vol 1 , pages 53 - Mark in "brother", "sister", "uncle", "nephew" and as many other names of kinds of relatives that you know. Is there an error in Dee's argument? There are many worker bees who are female too but unlike the queen bee, they produce no eggs. Ask your maths teacher or a parent if you are not sure of the answer! All the females are produced when the queen has mated with a male and so have two parents. So how many grand-parents will you have to make spaces for in your Family tree? Looking at your answers to the previous question, your friend Dee Duckshun says to you: You have 2 parents. He changes months into years and rabbits into bulls male and cows females in problem in his book puzzles and Curious Problems , Souvenir press : If a cow produces its first she-calf at age two years and after that produces another single she-calf every year, how many she-calves are there after 12 years, assuming none die? Draw a line from the centre out in any direction and find two places where the shell crosses it so that the shell spiral has gone round just once between them. There are some drone bees who are male and do no work. Such trees show all the ancestors predecessors, forebears, antecedents of the person at the bottom of the diagram. The outer crossing point will be about 1. In a colony of honeybees there is one special female called the queen. More puzzles not in the previous books the first section with some characters from Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and other sections on the Monks of Riddlewell, the squire's Christmas party, the Professors puzzles and so on and all with full solutions of course! The chambers provide buoyancy in the water. But Fibonacci does what mathematicians often do at first, simplify the problem and see what happens - and the series bearing his name does have lots of other interesting and practical applications as we see later. If not, look at the answer! Here Thompson is talking about a class of spiral with a constant expansion factor along a central line and not just shells with a Phi expansion factor. If we take the ratio of two successive numbers in Fibonacci's series, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13,.. The ratio seems to be settling down to a particular value, which we call the golden ratio or the golden number. The first Fibonacci numbers are here and some questions for you to answer. So let's look at another real-life situation that is exactly modelled by Fibonacci's series - honeybees. Another problem which again is not true to life, is that each birth is of exactly two rabbits, one male and one female. A real treasure. The second page then examines why the golden section is used by nature in some detail, including animations of growing plants. Rabbits are able to mate at the age of one month so that at the end of its second month a female can produce another pair of rabbits. Suppose that our rabbits never die and that the female always produces one new pair one male, one female every month from the second month on. First, some unusual facts about honeybees such as: not all of them have two parents! If not, here's why. In a whole turn the points on a radius out from the centre are 1. We can continue adding squares around the picture, each new square having a side which is as long as the sum of the latest two square's sides. Such spirals are seen in the shape of shells of snails and sea shells and, as we see later, in the arrangement of seeds on flowering plants too. It doesn't matter if you have no brothers or sisters or nephews as the diagram is meant to show the relationships and their names. Do you use a different name for the sister of your parent's? We would get quite a different tree if we listed all the descendants progeny, offspring of a person as we did in the rabbit problem, where we showed all the descendants of the original pair. A Dover reprint of a classic book.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} The puzzle that Fibonacci posed was The number of pairs of rabbits in the field at the start of each month is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, Can you see how the series is formed and how it continues? It seems to imply that brother and sisters mate, which, genetically, leads to problems. What is this sequence called? It shows that the farther back in time we go, the more people there must have been. Females usually end up as worker bees but some are fed with a special substance called royal jelly which makes them grow into queens ready to go off to start a new colony when the bees form a swarm and leave their home a hive in search of a place to build a new nest. In law these two are sometimes distinguished because one is a blood relative of yours and the other is not, just a relative through marriage. Cundy and Rollett Mathematical Models, second edition , page 70 say that this spiral occurs in snail-shells and flower-heads referring to D'Arcy Thompson's On Growth and Form probably meaning chapter 6 "The Equiangular Spiral". They also had two parents each making 8 great-grand-parents in total So the farther back you go in your Family Tree the more people there are. On the poster shown here, this factor varies from 1. Contents of this page The icon means there is a You do the maths Suppose a newly-born pair of rabbits, one male, one female, are put in a field. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}This, the first , looks at the Fibonacci numbers and why they appear in various "family trees" and patterns of spirals of leaves and seeds. This shows that the shell has grown by a factor of the golden ratio in one turn. We can now draw a new square - touching both a unit square and the latest square of side 2 - so having sides 3 units long; and then another touching both the 2-square and the 3-square which has sides of 5 units. They each have two parents, so that's 4 grand-parents you've got. Dudeney's Cows The English puzzlist, Henry E Dudeney - , pronounced Dude-knee wrote several excellent books of puzzles see after this section. So female bees have 2 parents, a male and a female whereas male bees have just one parent, a female. If you go back one generation to your parents, and two to your grand-parents, how many entries will there be 5 generations ago in your Tree?
