The Golden Ratio

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.
