    he was a great in math,solving a problem he saw some numbers repeat in patterns, from here he made his sequence 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144..infinite, if you divide these number by it's precedent,you get close to the aural or Φ(Phi) 1.618… before fibonacci this is a knowledge only in hands of secret society like the pitagorians. in fact the partenon is builded with these knowledge, but is not true that the greek discover first, you can see it in all ancient building like piramids or more

    well… it's simple, Fibonacci invented these gauge for measuring the golden ratio in geometry and the gauge take his name… it's like the Pythagoras Gauge in this video: watch?v=yR2UCkoh9ZQ the gauge take the name of pythagora cause he invented the gauge and formulated the famous theorem, but he don't discover the 90° angle ;-)… it was a more ancient knowledge, look at the piramids again.

    FYI, Fibonacci didn't live "in Greek times"; he was an Italian mathematician who lived in the middle ages.

    Kind of a bastardized explanation of the fib ratio and actually confuses it more than necessary. The fib gauge sets the fib ratio which is 1:1.618. If the top is 8" wide the bottom is 13" wide. If 21" wide at top, 34" wide at bottom. The guage really isn't necessary as long as you know the ratio – 1.00 to 1.618. This was the ratio used to build most of the ancient Greek buildings, but it wasn't until the 16th century that the ratio was defined by Fibonacci, an Italian mathematician.
