    Link: Nerdy Tattoo Of The Day: Math! - Cue the uptight prigs that are going to say this isn`t math, but rather something else.

    would that be the golden ratio? C is to B as B is to A?

    Funny thing is - I have a math background (BS in applied math) and yet, what pops into my mind first is Piet Mondrian... not Golden Ratio.

    I WAS going to say this applies more to art than to math even though it it mathematical.....The Golden Rectangle is a fairly common proportion in art work. Piet Mondrian is probably the most obvious use of it and modular grid systems.

    would that be the golden ratio? C is to B as B is to A?

    So close, I`ll give you partial credit.
    The Golden Ratio is a/b = b/(a+b)
    or in your words, A is to B as B is to A+B

    @simbha: that`s because you`re APPLIED math :p For us PURE mathematicians, this is instantly recognizable. My first thought was that it`s a little dull for a tattoo if the golden rectangle.
    Also, punk7643, that just goes to show how much art relies on math :)

    The only reason I knew even where to start with this tatoo was because I`ve just read through Echo by Terry Moore^^

    I wonder if you change weight the proportions would be wrong? Like a triangle drawn on the surface of a sphere would have angles that add up to more than 180 degrees.
