# Talk:The Golden Ratio

### From Math Images

Feedback for The Golden Ratio:

- all comments welcome!

UPDATE: the initial group meeting has been tentatively rescheduled for next Monday (6/4/12) in the afternoon. Maybe 2 or 3? Any time conflicts, post them here:

I guess some general concerns...

- I am having trouble getting the main image to show up. Even when the image is resized much smaller, it still appears very big and blurry. Any suggestions?
- I feel like this page has very little text (and a lot of math). However, I'm not really sure what to add. Any ideas?
- Are the proofs self-explanatory?
- Any ideas for more animation?

Small gripes about a very good page from Gene:

"golden ratio refers to the ratio phi : "

- "refers to any ratio which has the value phi" ?? No colon, too.

1. The image

- Why the "1"?

In reality, man of these claims

- Don't you mean "women of these claims"?

George Markowsky argues that, similar to the Mona Lisa,

- "like the Mona Lisa" ?

Let r denote the ratio : -- replace by

- Suppose the ratio r = a/b is the same as (a+b)/a,

In the continued fraction, before the first continued fraction representation (before "This last infinite form is a continued fraction" add something like

- Continuing this substation forever

In the sentence following my above quote, I don't get

- (the finite displays above it)

It would be good to have a subsection called Continued Fraction Representation and one called Fibonacci Numbers.

Following "Let's also denote the terms of the Fibonacci sequence as" at least have

- ... S3 = 2, etc.

By our definition of xn, we have

- By our assumptions about x1, ..., xn ??

Noting the definition of , we see that we have

- Where the hell did the f's come from all of a sudden?
