Is clarification needed?[change source]

"and each number after that is equal to adding the two numbers before it together"
The phrase "two numbers before it" is actually supposed to mean here "two preceding numbers", but "before it" is not always "preceding". Wouldn't it be more correct to change it to "two numbers right before it" instead? Or would it be too colloquial? Because as it stands now, it's simply incorrect (or correct in some cases).--Adûnâi (talk) 19:18, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
