>Yes, this is yet another way to get the "Golden Section". An interesting thing is that since it is a quadratic, there are two solutions to it. One of them is the golden mean, and the other is the negative reciprocal of it, which is also interesting in that the reciprocal is the decimal part of the original. Weird stuff;-) (probably only of interest to math geeks, but there are a bunch of interesting things about the golden mean)
