We’ve had a few calls about Lesson 121, Fibonacci Numbers and Phi, from Level G. This is a hard one, but, oh, what fun when you get it!
So, rather than type a long winded explanation and have you read it, I decided to make a video for you. With graphics! It’s about a half hour long, but I think you’ll find it worth the time.
Oh, by the way, there’s a correction to this page that we just posted. Here it is for you:
Under Problem 2, the second and third paragraphs should read as follows:
In the third column, you are comparing how much the ratios differ from the golden ratio. A quick way to find these differences is to use memory on your calculator. First put 1.61803 into memory using the M+ key. Then to subtract 1 from 1.61803, do the following:
Press 1 then — MR = . The answer –0.61803 appears. (Ignore the negative sign when recording the answer.)
For the next answer,
Press 2 then — MR = . The answer 0.38197 appears.
Note that some of the newer calculators have replaced the MR button with the MRC button. It will still work the same.
