There are just two numbers that remain the same when they are squared namely and . Other numbers get bigger and some get smaller when we square them: Squares that are bigger Squares that are smaller is 4 is 9 is 100 One definition of Phi (the golden section number) is that to square it you just add 1 or, in mathematics: Phi = Phi + 1 In fact, there are

##### The Golden Ratio
Throughout history, the ratio for length to width of rectangles of 1.61803 39887 49894 84820 has been considered the most pleasing to the eye. This ratio was named the golden ratio by the Greeks. In the world of mathematics, the numeric value is called "phi", named for the Greek sculptor Phidias. The space between the collumns form golden rectangles. There are golden rectangles throughout this structure which is found in Athens, Greece. He sculpted many things including the bands of sculpture that run above the columns of the Parthenon. You can take a slide show visit to the Parthenon which is pictured above. Phidias widely used the golden ratio in his works of sculpture. The exterior dimensions of the Parthenon in Athens, built in about 440BC, form a perfect golden rectangle. How many examples of golden rectangles can you find in the below floorplan of the Parthenon? You may want to print the diagram and measure the distances using a ruler. Following are more examples of art and architecture which have employed the golden rectangle. This first example of the Great Pyramid of Giza is believed to be 4,600 years old, which was long before the Greeks. Its dimensions are also based on the Golden Ratio. The website about the pyramid gives very extensive details on this.

Lambrou Golden Ratio A number often encountered when taking the ratios of distances in simple geometric figures such as the pentagram decagon and dodecagon . It is denoted , or sometimes (which is an abbreviation of the Greek "tome," meaning "to cut"). is also known as the divine proportion, golden mean, and golden section and is a Pisot-Vijayaraghavan constant . It has surprising connections with continued fractions and the Euclidean algorithm for computing the greatest common divisor of two integers Given a rectangle having sides in the ratio is defined such that partitioning the original rectangle into a square and new rectangle results in a new rectangle having sides with a ratio . Such a rectangle is called a golden rectangle , and successive points dividing a golden rectangle into squares lie on a logarithmic spiral . This figure is known as a whirling square .

##### The Golden Ratio and The Fibonacci Numbers
The Golden Ratio ) is an irrational number with several curious properties. It can be defined as that number which is equal to its own reciprocal plus one: . Multiplying both sides of this same equation by the Golden Ratio we derive the interesting property that the square of the Golden Ratio is equal to the simple number itself plus one: . Since that equation can be written as , we can derive the value of the Golden Ratio from the quadratic equation, , with a = 1 b = -1 , and c = -1 . The Golden Ratio is an irrational number, but not a transcendental one (like ), since it is the solution to a polynomial equation. This gives us either or . The first number is usually regarded as the Golden Ratio itself, the second as the negative of its reciprocal. The Golden Ratio can also be derived from trigonometic functions: = 2 sin 3 /10 = 2 cos ; and = 2 sin /10 = 2 cos 2 . The angles in the trigonometric equations in degrees rather than radians are o o o , and 72 o , respectively. The Golden Ratio seems to get its name from the Golden Rectangle , a rectangle whose sides are in the proportion of the Golden Ratio. The theory of the Golden Rectangle is an aesthetic one, that the ratio is an aesthetically pleasing one and so can be found spontaneously or deliberately turning up in a great deal of art. Thus, for instance, the front of the Parthenon can be comfortably framed with a Golden Rectangle. How pleasing the Golden Rectangle is, and how often it really does turn up in art, may be largely a matter of interpretation and preference. The construction of a Golden Rectangle, however, is an interesting exercise in the geometry of the Golden Ratio

Even from the time of the Greeks, a rectangle whose sides are in the golden proportion (1 : 1.618 which is the same as 0.618 : 1) has been known since it occurs naturally in some of the proportions of the Five Platonic Solids (as we have already seen) and a construction for the golden section point is found in Euclid's Elements in this connection. This rectangle is supposed to appear in many of the proportions of that famous ancient Greek temple, the Parthenon, in the Acropolis in Athens , Greece but there is no original documentary evidence that this was how the building was designed. (There is a replica of the original building (accurate to one-eighth of an inch!) at

The Golden Ratio

The golden ratio is a special number approximately equal to 1.6180339887498948482. We use the Greek letter Phi to refer to this ratio. Like Pi, the digits of the Golden Ratio go on forever without repeating. It is often better to use its exact value: The Golden Rectangle
A Golden Rectangle is a rectangle in which the ratio of the length to the width is the Golden Ratio. In other words, if one side of a Golden Rectangle is 2 ft. long, the other side will be approximately equal to Now that you know a little about the Golden Ratio and the Golden Rectangle, let's look a little deeper. Take a line segment and label its two endpoints A and C. Now put a point B between A and C so that the ratio of the short part of the segment (AB) to the long part (BC) equals the ratio of the long part (BC) to the entire segment (AC): The ratio of the lengths of the two parts of this segment is the Golden Ratio.

##### by Mark Freitag
Most people are familiar with the number Pi, since it is one of the most ubiquitous irrational numbers known to man. But, there is another irrational number that has the same propensity for popping up and is not as well known as Pi. This wonderful number is Phi, and it has a tendency to turn up in a great number of places, a few of which will be discussed in this essay. One way to find Phi is to consider the solutions to the equation When solving this equation we find that the roots are x = ~ 1.618... or x= We consider the first root to be Phi. We can also express Phi by the following two series. Phi = or Phi = We can use a spreadsheet to see that these two series do approximate the value of Phi. Or, we can show that the limit of the infinite series equals Phi in a more concrete way. For example, let x be equal to the infinte series of square roots.
x Squaring both sides we have
But this leads to the equation which in turn leads to and this has Phi as one of its roots. Similarly, it can be shown that the limit of the series with fractions is Phi as well. When finding the limit of the fractional series, we can take a side trip and see that Phi is the only number that when one is subtracted from it results in the reciprocal of the number.
Phi can also be found in many geometrical shapes, but instead of representing it as an irrational number, we can express it in the following way. Given a line segment, we can divide it into two segments A and B, in such a way that the length of the entire segment is to the length of the segment A as the length of segment A is to the length of segment B. If we calculate these ratios, we see that we get an approximation of the Golden Ratio.

##### One property of golden rectangles is that their length (length + width) = width length
We used this property when we built the rectangle , and now we will use it to confirm the value of the golden ratio. When we cross multiply the above proportion, we get l = lw + w or l - lw - w Solving the equation gives us l = w(1 + sqrt5) 2 Divide both sides by w: l = (1 + sqrt5) - - w 2 Enter this into a calculator, and you'll see the approximation of the golden ratio - Geometry Online Index
