## Introduction

In the project "The Golden Ratio" I had to draw a picture of any kind, but three things in the picture, and the paper needed to be in the golden Ratio. After that, I need to explain how I made the pieces of the picture into the golden Ratio.

**Why did I choose this project?**

I choose this Project because I really like to draw. I like to draw because in drawing you can let your fantasy play, and show the creative side of you.

**Golden Ratio in the paper**

The picture I drew also is in the golden ratio. I used the formula L times 1.6 cm = golden ratio. My length is 18 cm so I need to times 18 cm by 1.6 cm.

**Result**

I times 18 cm by 1.6 cm and got 28.8 cm. That means that the golden ratio of the paper 18 cm by 28.8 cm is.

**Golden Ratio in the front square of the house**

I needed to have 3 things in the picture that are in the golden ratio. For my first thing I choose the front square of the house. It isn't round so I used it for the golden Ratio. Again I used the formula L times 16 = golden ratio. The length of the front square is 5 cm. Now I times 5 cm by 1.6 cm.

**Result**

I times 5 cm by 1.6 cm and get 8 cm. So the golden ratio of the front square is 5 cm by 8 cm.

True or not

To show you that my calculations where correct, I need to divide 8 cm by 5 cm and get 1.6 cm so I'm correct.

**The Golden Ratio in the windows**

My second thing in the golden ratio are the two windows in the front of the house. This time I will also use the formula L times 1.6 cm = golden ratio. the length of one side of the window is 2 cm.

**Result**

As a result when you times 2 cm by 1.6 cm you get 3.2 cm. The golden ratio of the windows is 2 cm by 3.2 cm.

True or not

To show you that my answer is correct I have to divide 3.2 cm by 2 cm and get 1.6 cm so the answer is correct.

**The golden ratio of the pond**

As my third and also last one, it is the ratio of the pond. A last time I will use the formula L times 1.6 cm = golden ratio. The length of one side of the pond is 3 cm. So I have to times 3 cm by 1.6 cm.

**Result**

The last result of 3 cm by 1.6 cm is 4.8 cm. The golden ratio of the pond is 3 cm by 4.8 cm.

True or not

To show you the last time if my answer is true I have to divide 4.8 cm by 3 cm and I get 1.6 cm so I know I'm correct.

## Did I like the Project

I really liked the project because...

You could actually draw a picture in this project. That you could find out how to find out the golden ratio. I also really liked the project because you could use any website you want to publish the project, that you could choose witch website to take.
