Can you describe more about the golden ratio – Karan Thakkar · 4 years, 1 month ago

Wolfram gives plenty of more information behind the math, although some of it is hard to understand. Some neat things that involve the golden ratio are as such: \[\phi=\sqrt{1+\sqrt{1+\sqrt{1+\sqrt{1+\cdots}}}}=1+\frac{1}{1+\frac{1}{1+\frac{1}{1+\frac{1}{1+\cdots}}}}\] – Bob Krueger · 4 years, 1 month ago

YOU'RE WELCOME! You know, wikipedia and mathematica/wolframalpha describe everything you could possibly want to know about any number or equation out there. If you have a problem with language translation, I can't really help you with that. If you have a problem with understanding the mathematics, then just wait until you learn more mathematical concepts.Log in to reply

Can anyone tell me what is the meaning of golden ratio – Karan Thakkar · 4 years, 1 month ago

It's meaning? Numbers don't really have meaning. They are just there. They are what they are. Equations and other things of that sort have a meaning, for they compare different expressions. But the golden ratio is just a number found in nature. It's \(\frac{1+\sqrt{5}}{2}\). That's all.Log in to reply
