 Funky Fibonacci Fractions (Posted on 2007-02-22)
100/89= 1.1235..., which includes the first five Fibonacci numbers.

10000/9899=1.010203050813213455... includes the first ten Fibonacci numbers.

1000000/998999=1.001002003005... produces the first 15 Fibonacci numbers.

If you add two zeros in the numerator and two nines (one at the beginning, one at the end) in the denominator, does this Fibonacci production go on?

Increasing the precision and extending the numbers:

10   print 10000000000/9999899999
20   A=1:B=1
30   repeat
40     C=A+B:A=B:B=C:print C
50   until C>99999
OK
