I just finished posted a series of comics with crazy numbers in the titles after the word "part", instead of the normal "Part 1/10, Part 2/10, ..." etc.

This is because those numbers were intended to be ratios, and not just any ratios, but **Fibonacci** number ratios. As you might have guessed from the first episode in that sequence, I would be working with Fibonacci numbers. You might also have guessed that I would have been done by the time I got to 21 -- That's okay! I was expecting to be done a lot sooner, too!

As I hope to get into a little more depth tomorrow, when you divide two consecutive Fibonacci numbers, you get a ratio that is close to the **Golden Ratio**, which is also known as "phi", and is approximately 1.6180339887. The larger the terms, the smaller the difference between the two ratios.

Here is a table showing you the first 15 terms:

But that's not the only thing interesting about the Golden Ratio. (Well, of course not! Books could -- and have -- been written!) There should be more about it in tomorrow's entry.
