Fibonacci sequence in the hiding

Daily-Life-Math-Facts-2

What ?!! There exists such an elegant decimal representation of the Fibonacci sequence? Well yes! and the only thing that you need to know to prove this is that if the Fibonacci numbers were the coefficients to a power series expansion, then the Fibonacci generating function is given as follows:

1x + 1x^{2} + 2x^{3} + 3x^{4} + 5x^{5} + \hdots = \frac{x}{1-x-x^{2}}

Subsituting the value of x  = \frac{1}{10} , we get :

\frac{1}{10} + \frac{1}{10}^{2} + 2(\frac{1}{10})^{3} + 3(\frac{1}{10})^{4} + 5(\frac{1}{10})^{5} + \hdots = \frac{\frac{1}{10}}{1-\frac{1}{10}-\frac{1}{10}^{2}}

0.1 + 0.01 + 0.002 + 0.0003 + 0.00005 + \hdots = \frac{10}{89}  

0.01 + 0.001 + 0.0002 + 0.00003 + 0.000005 + \hdots = \frac{1}{89}  

Proved. 😀
