### Abstract

The Mulatu numbers are sequences of numbers of form 4, 1, 5, 6, 11, 17, 28, 45, ….  The numbers have wonderful and amazing properties and patterns. In mathematical terms, it is defined by the following recurrence relation: The first number of the sequence is 4, the second number is 1, and each subsequent number is equal to the sum of the previous two numbers of the sequence itself. That is, after two starting values, each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers. In this paper, we give summary of some

important properties and patterns of Mulatu numbers. Its relations to the Fibonacci and Lucas numbers are also investigated.
