**LESSON 2. Equations
with no End**
When
rules for math are created, you produce something amazing. Numbers become a
puzzle, that many people spend their careers unraveling the mystery.
Throughout mathematical history there have
always been sequences or numbers that have intrigued people. We will look at
three famous equations that produce numbers with “no end” including **Pi (****B),**
**Fibonacci Numbers**, and **Golden Ratio** or **Phi(****M). **
These numbers are **
irrational.**
**The Circle and the Pi (B)**
The **circle** goes back before recorded
history with the discovery of the wheel. Circles are closed **curves** that
are **equidistant** from a fixed point called the **center**. The**
circumference** (c) is the outside **perimete**r of a circle. If you
draw a line through the center it is called the **diameter** (d). The
center to the edge it is called the **radius** (r) or half the diameter
(1/2d). A circle is a highly symmetrical shape. |
