Fibonacci Sequence in the Phi Spiral

Dewayne Broussard, December 2009

Here is a graphic representation of how the Fibonacci
sequence is related to the Phi ratio. The spiral is a Phi
spiral increasing by Фn where n is the number of
revolutions. The circles are in the diameters of the
Fibonacci sequence and tangent to the spiral As the
ratio between the two successive number in the series
become closer to Phi the more they become aligned on
a ray emanating from the center.

The chart below shows this relation can be applied to
any number and even by subtraction.
