# Frazz by Jef Mallett for January 16, 2013

#### Transcript:

Caulfield: Check out my cheezy chili chips. They crumble such that each layer down, the chips are roughly two-thirds the size of the chips above them. I've discovered fibonachos! Frazz: Does it work with blue chips or just the golden ones?

So when the chips are down, he actually finds a use for math?

## SusanSunshine Premium Member almost 10 years ago

Of course, they’re nacho ordinary chips.

## Randy B Premium Member almost 10 years ago

So are these inverse fibonachos?

## vwdualnomand almost 10 years ago

or, get real nachos that use real cheese and toppings.

You say that like that’s a

We need a mechanism to “like” or upvote some of these funny comments.

I’m nacho this is funny. (Hi SS!)

It’s referred to as the “Golden Ratio.” Thus, the last panel.

LMAO

Our math fans have yet to mention what the “golden ratio” actually is (unless I took too long to write this). As the Fibonacci sequence continues, the ratio of an element to the one that precedes it converges to 1.61803… To add to the excitement, the inverse (1/x) of that ratio is .61803…

For the ratio in nature, I found this series the most entertaining and informative:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahXIMUkSXX0Doodling in Math: Spirals, Fibonacci, and Being a Plant

Thank you for the explanation, you learn something new every day.

also known as the Golden ratio

## EdFenster Premium Member almost 10 years ago

Actually, the ratio of sequential Fibonacci numbers approaches the Golden ratio (about 1.618) asymtotically. Going downward, it is the inverse (about 0.618), closer to 5/8 than 2/3. Since there is no blue ratio, it probably doesn’t work for blue chips.

All in all, one of the best math puns I’ve seen in the comics.

## Konabill almost 10 years ago

I thought the comic was funny as H. The comments are out of site.

## Arianne almost 10 years ago

Like Frazz’s shirt, the funny here is spiraling out of control!

## lynnskay almost 10 years ago

I studied Fibonacci sequence when I was learning how to make my own knitting patterns. There’s a lot of math in the arts, as in many aspects of life. Stay in school kids.

## rgcviper almost 10 years ago

Clever. I like it!

@EdFensterPoint taken. I did mean to say “toward” instead of “to”. I had a niggle that I was taking a bad shortcut and ended up with comfortable language that was wrong. I like partner dancing because any error is noticed immediately and corrected.
