In the thirteenth century, the Italian mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci studied the following (not too realistic) question:
A farmer raises rabbits. Each rabbit gives birth to one rabbit when it turns 2 months old, and then to one rabbit each month thereafter. Rabbits never die, and we ignore male rabbits. How many rabbits will the farmer have in the nth month if he starts with one newborn rabbit?
