Dr. Elliot McGucken Simple Golden Ratio Construction: Consider two congruent equilateral triangles ABC and DEF both resting on a common horizontal line. AB is perpendicular to the horizontal line. Point D is at the midpoint of AC. E rests on the horizontal line. CK is perpendicular to the horizontal line. The ratio of segments AK/KE is the golden ratio.
