Golden ratio is a very special and specific number that is roughly 1.618. Now, you may be wondering why we used specific and roughly in the same sentence. That is because the golden ratio is an irrational number. It is the irrational number that we can find in the nature itself. In this article, we will elaborate on what golden ratio is, who has a golden ratio face and how you can achieve that ideal look.
As we mentioned in the introduction, it is a very important study in areas such as mathematics, geometry, and even design, as it is needed for sequential growth, that is why the number 1.618 (used as 1.62 in some cases) is very important. Ever looked at a sunflower and noticed how the middle part spiral with seeds is very pleasing to look at? That is because it is tied to the golden ratio. In fact, it is one of the classic examples of golden ratio in nature.
Let us demonstrate how we can find the golden ratio in a small example. Let’s say we have line that is 200 centimeters long. Now, we have to divide it in a very specific way that upon dividing, the quotient of the longer part by the shorter part should be equivalent to the quotient of the whole line by the longer part.
Sounds confusing, right? Actually, not at all! In this case, with the 200-centimeter-long line that we have, we have to divide it by 123.6 to 76.4 ratio. That way, when we divide 123.6 by 76.4, it equals to 1.618. And when we divide 200 by 123.6, it also equals to 1.618.
