Re: Re: Re: Re: What do you know about the golden ratio?

Justin McKinley

It also occurs as the ratio of the numbers of the Fibonacci sequence, as they grow larger (i.e. fith and sixth terms won't be very close to the ratio, but the terms 1,000,000 and 1,000,001 will be very close)
Also notably, a rectangle with the golden ratio between its sides can be devided into a square and another rectangle with the golden ratio between its sides. If you were to draw a rectangle, it would probably be very close to this, as the golden ratio is very pleasing to the eyes.
