What is the golden ratio?
pfenn1
  • pfenn1
The golden ratio is also called the divine proportion. It equals 1.618 (approx).

  • pfenn1
Assuming the length is larger than the width 1.618=x/110

does it have any thing to do with fibonacci numbers?

^Yeah, that's how I would solve it too. :-)

a/b = 1/2(1+sqrt(5))

110 is not correct. :P

@drpeppergal , according to wikipedia, the ratio of sequential elements of the Fibonacci sequence approaches the golden ratio asymptotically.

It's 177.98 @computergeek123 :-)

1.618*110 = x

Typo: it should be \[\LARGE \Phi^n = Fib(n) \Phi + Fib(n-1) \]

  • anonymous
Which side is which?
anonymous
  • anonymous
68 (approx) 110/68 = 1.618
anonymous
  • anonymous
so i woulld put 180?
anonymous
  • anonymous
OK, assuming one is less than other, I see now...
anonymous
  • anonymous
180 is too much rounding, I guess. 178 is better, but we are already rounding phi to 1.618 only :-)
anonymous
  • anonymous
I still say there are 2 answers, why should you divide length by width?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sure, I agree @estudier. It's a pretty badly formulated question. @computergeek123 should pick between one of two. :-)
anonymous
  • anonymous
well theres 100, 120, 150 and 180 so i think 180 is best? @bmp
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yup, then it's

  • anonymous
OK, assumed in the choices......grrr.

Bibi is using a software program that allows her to change the shape of a two-dimensional figure by making changes to the sides. She starts with a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel. She stretches the shorter edges of the quadrilateral to make all four sides congruent. Which statement best describes the figure that she created? Answer She changed a kite to a square. She changed a rectangle to a square. She changed a trapezoid to a rhombus.✔ She changed a parallelogram to a rhombus.
anonymous
  • anonymous
The last one, it's just the definition of a trapezoid and a rhombus, so, it's correct :-)

  • anonymous
So i have the correct answers??
