Golden Ratio


Two quantities are in the golden ratio if the ratio of the sum of the quantities to the larger quantity is equal to (=) the ratio of the larger quantity to the smaller one. The golden ratio is an irrational mathematical constant, approximately 1.6180339887.

Golden ratio is found in everything from Da Vinci’s Monalisa to Salvador Dali’s Last Supper to Fibonacci series to Egyptian Pyramids to the spirals in the sunflower head.
