Its total landmass is 181,035 square kilometres (69,898 sq mi), bordered by Thailand to the northwest, Laos to the northeast, Vietnam to the east, and the Gulf of Thailand to the southwest. Cambodia's ancient name is "Kambuja" (Sanskrit: कंबुज).[10] In 802 AD, Jayavarman II declared himself king marking the beginning of the Khmer Empire which flourished for over 600 years allowing successive kings to dominate much of Southeast Asia and accumulate immense power and wealth.

The Fibonacci spiral: an approximation of the golden spiral created by drawing circular arcs connecting the opposite corners of squares in the Fibonacci tiling;[3] this one uses squares of sizes 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, and 34. By definition, the first two numbers in the Fibonacci sequence are either 1 and 1, or 0 and 1, depending on the chosen starting point of the sequence, and each subsequent number is the sum of the previous two. In mathematical terms, the sequence Fn of Fibonacci numbers is defined by the recurrence relation with seed values or The Fibonacci sequence is named after Fibonacci. Fibonacci numbers are closely related to Lucas numbers in that they are a complementary pair of Lucas sequences. Origins[edit] List of Fibonacci numbers[edit] and

According to the Book of Mormon, the prophet Mormon engraved an abridgement of his people's history on golden plates. Based on the chronology described in the book, Mormon lived during the 4th century AD. As a narrator in the text, Mormon presents himself as a redactor. According to Mormon's record in the Book of Mormon,[1] he was born in about AD 311 to a father whose name was also Mormon. Mormon writes that at age fifteen he was visited by Jesus Christ.[4] In his "sixteenth year," Mormon became the leader of the Nephite armies,[5] and fought against the Lamanites in many battles thereafter. Mormon went to the hill Shim at about the age of 24, as instructed by Ammaron,[6] to take and abridge the Nephite records.[7]

In the mid-1980s, the band was embroiled in an obscenity trial in the United States over the artwork of their album Frankenchrist (1985), which included the explicit titular subject of H.
