### Golden Ratio Two – The Golden Triangle

Another version of the golden ratio is the golden triangle. This works by creating right angle triangles off a central line that spreads from one corner to the opposite diagonal corner. This then creates a focus point and a ‘cradle’ just inside the point of the smallest triangle.

The first image has created four right angled triangles whereas the next two have only three.

The third seems to have created three triangles yet hasn’t positioned the focus point at the point where they intersect. If you were to put in an extra line to create a forth triangle, as in the first, it would still be missing the desired focal point.
