    Golden ratio pentagon

    So I need to show that the diagonal x satisfies the following ratio x/1=1/(x-1). I know this turns out to be the golden ratio, But I cant seem to find the similar triangles in order to find this ratio in this pentagon. Any help is appreciated, thanks

    Comparing ratios to the Golden Ratio

    Hi all, I'm currently trying to write an equation or piece of logic which will allow me to test ratios against the Golden Ratio to find the closest match. The ratios I need to test range from 1:255 to 255:1 (to several decimal places) and I want to convert these ratios into a decimal (z)...

    Determining step size using golden ratio

    I would like to calculate the minimum of the function g(x,y) = (y-x^2)^2+(1.1 -x)^2 using the steepest descent method. I am, however, stuck at determining the step size. I want to calculate the step size using golden ratio, however, as I have only use the method in 1 dimension, I don't know how...

    calculate the number of best fit golden rectangles in a given area

    Hello all :-) Here's an interesting one that is not as simple as it seems at first. Lets say my daughter has a piece of paper. It has a height (H) and width (W). She wants to draw an arial view of a number of farmers fields (N). The thing is she's been learning about the golden ratio...

    About the golden ratio

    Is this equality valid? I just noticed it, and I haven't heard of it before. 2cos(\frac{\pi }{5})=\varphi,~where~\varphi~is~the~golden~ratio.

    Help proving the golden ratio is "hereditary".

    Need a little help with this excercise: "Show that the golden ratio is hereditary. For this, take a CeAB, which divides this segment according to the golden ratio and a DeAC, such as AD ≡ CB. All you need to do is show that AC/AD = AD/DC. Rember that AC^2 = AB.CB." Thanks

    fibonacci and the golden ratio proof

    any help on getting started would be great. i really don't know where to go with this as i'm useless with limits. alpha is the golden ration ((1+sqrt5)/2) f2k etc are part of the fibonacci sequence prove lim f2k/f2k+1 = 1/alpha k->infinity

    evaluating pi and e from integer series like golden ratio

    Apologies if I'm in the wrong forum. The ratio of two successive terms in the Fibonacci series converges on the golden ratio. Are there equivalent number series that evaluate pi or e?

    Calculating Phi (golden ratio) - continued fraction.

    My teacher told our class that the \varphi can be calculated by: 1 + \frac{1}{1 + \frac{1}{1+ \frac{1}{...}}} I don't understand how or why this works. I understand that as the denominators' continue on forever, the 1 + (fraction) changes ever so slightly. How do I go about...

    Golden Ratio Based from 1..10 ?

    My wife and I were having this discussion on the golden ratio being used to measure beauty and thought it would be fun to calculate our own ratings based 1..10 (10 being the perfect golden ratio 1.618) We have each of our scores see below: first face mesaurment (height / width) = 1.571...

    Fibonacci and golden section proof

    hello, based on the formular for Fibonacci numbers I am supposed to calculate the value for the golden section phi. (1) rn = Fn+1 / Fn converges against phi, and I have to prove that (2) rn+1 = 1 + 1 / rn and thus phi = 1 + 1 / phi But how do I get from (1) to (2) ? any help greatly...
