How to break this problem down help
Posted:
Mar 20, 2007 4:03 AM


1/x = x/1+x can be drilled down to x squared = 1+x can be drilled down to 1 = x squared  x
How do I get this to the golden ratio of
(1+sqrt{5})/2
Any explanation to help out an old man such as myself would be appreciated please! Got this from trying to understand the golden ratio from this link http://mathforum.org/dr.math/faq/faq.golden.ratio.html
thanks, ken
