The golden ratio φ is a mathematical constant obtained as the ratio of longest-to-shorted side lengths in a rectangle constructed so that when it is partitioned into a square and new rectangle, the new rectangle has the same ratio of side lengths as the original. The golden ratio has value of approximately 1.618.
Golden ratio is a middle school-level concept.
|Geometry:||Geometry is the branch of mathematics that studies figures, objects, and their relationships to each other. This contrasts with algebra, which studies numerical quantities and attempts to solve equations.|
|Rectangle:||A rectangle is a quadrilateral with opposite sides of equal length and with four right angles.|
|Square Root:||A square root of x is a number r such that r*r = x.|
