Fibonacci number sequence is constructed by adding the first two numbers to arrive at the third. The ratio of any number to the next number is 61.8 percent, which is a popular Fibonacci retracement number. The inverse of 61.8 percent is 38.2 percent, also used as a Fibonacci retracement number. The ratio of the Fibonacci sequence is important, not the actual numbers in the sequence ie: 1, 2, 3, 5, 8.
