One day, I had a dream. A dream of math. I often had dreams in which I was struggling with the math exam, but this time, it was different. First, a right triangle came out.
Next, the theorem of Pythagoras.
I thought "Oh, this is the golden section," then, I woke up.
It's beautiful, but is this true?This must be a dream of the Great Pyramid's angle of inclination which I've been thinking of since I was twenty.
So I checked out if my dream was true. I found in a book, Herodotus heard from an Egyptian priest that "Each area of the Great Pyramid's side equals a quadrilateral which has a side of the Pyramid's height.' I can figure out the golden triangle from this story.
an area of the Pyramid's sideione of the four sidesjis
On the other hand, the area of a quadrilateral which has a side of the Pyramid's height is
This golden triangle is the same as the one I dreamed of.
But could this be a real golden triangle? Actually, I found a Finabotch progression which I asked my friend to calculate in the computer center of my university. It's no trouble for me to calculate the golden section.
If this is correct,
In this case, 1=0.99999998.
If the angle of this golden triangle is ¿, I can think of the next expression.
The periphery of this golden triangle Pyramid is the same as the circumference whose radius is the Pyramid's height?
The Great Pyramid's angle of inclination is
