Fibonacci – Magic numbers in design Golden Ratio is φ (phi) φ = 1 + = 1.6180339 φ = ½(√5+1) = 1.62 (2dp) 1φ Every side in the pentagram is φ times another side.

Alpha-Numeric codes Line up your code strips and read off the letters a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z a 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 z y x w v u t s r q p o n m l k j i h g f e d c b a a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 z y x w v u t s r q p o n m l k j i h g f e d c b a From the peach strip: bxpv zlab becomes easy code From the white strip: hdvb frgh becomes easy code be he a s If you have numbers, try direct substitution, a=1 e.g. 14 21 13 2 5 18 3 15 4 5 becomes number code x p
