What the heck is a Golden Ratio?

Two quantities are in the golden ratio if the ratio of the sum of the quantities to the larger quantity is equal to the ratio of the larger quantity to the smaller one. In other words:

(a+b)/a=a/b=ᵠ

ᵠ has been determined to be

[1+sqrt(5)]/2.

It is a beautiful thing.
