Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can represent the Fibonacci sequence as: \[\left[\begin{matrix}F_{n+1} & F_n \\ F_n &F_{n1}\end{matrix}\right] = \left[\begin{matrix}1 & 1 \\ 1 & 0\end{matrix}\right]^n\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If the first equation is true, then\[\left[\begin{matrix}1 & 1 \\ 1 & 0\end{matrix}\right]^{n+1}=\left[\begin{matrix}1 & 1 \\ 1 & 0\end{matrix}\right]^n*\left[\begin{matrix}1 & 1 \\ 1 & 0\end{matrix}\right]\]: \[= \left[\begin{matrix}F_{n+1} & F_n \\ F_n & F_{n1}\end{matrix}\right]*\left[\begin{matrix}1 & 1 \\ 1 & 0\end{matrix}\right]\] \[= \left[\begin{matrix}F_{n+1}+F_n & F_{n+1} \\ F_n+F_{n1} & F_n\end{matrix}\right]=\left[\begin{matrix}F_{n+2} & F_{n+1} \\ F_{n+1} & F_n\end{matrix}\right]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So: \[\left[\begin{matrix}F_{n+1} & F_n \\ F_n & F_{n1}\end{matrix}\right] = \left[\begin{matrix}1 & 1 \\ 1 & 0\end{matrix}\right]^n \forall n \in Z_+\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now, take the determinant of both sides: \[F_{n+1}F_{n1}F_n^2=\det \left[\begin{matrix}1 & 1 \\ 1 & 0\end{matrix}\right]^n\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The determinant of the products of square matrices is the products of the determinants of the matrices: \[= (\det \left[\begin{matrix}1 & 1 \\ 1 & 0\end{matrix}\right])^n\]
