# Golden Section in Two Equilateral Triangles

## Quang Tuan Bui

### November 6, 2011

ABC and AMN are two equilateral triangles where M is midpoint of side BC. Arc 60° centered at B passing through A, C intersects side MN by golden ratio.

For a proof, construct

- D as symmetry of A in M,
- E as symmetry of A in N,
- Q as symmetry of P in M.

By George Odom,

(There is another proof for the same construction.)
