A “Kepler triangle” is a right triangle having edge lengths in a geometric progression, in which the common ratio is √ϕ, where ϕ represents the golden ratio.

Well, let’s construct a square with side length √ϕ that inscribes a Kepler triangle, that is, a right triangle with edges 1 : √ϕ : ϕ (or approximately 1 : 1.272 : 1.618), as shown in the picture. Draw then the circumcircle of the Kepler triangle (highlighted in orange in the picture) whose diameter is the hypotenuse of the triangle.

Then, the perimeters of the square (4√ϕ≈5.0884) and the circle (πϕ≈5.083) coincide up to an error less than 0.1%. From this, we can get the approximation coincidence π≈4/√ϕ

## Equi-extended and isoperimetric non-congruent triangles

The picture below shows the ONLY one pair of triangles with the following properties:

· One triangle is a right triangle and one is isosceles,

· All side lengths of both triangles are rational numbers, and

· The perimeters and areas of both triangles are equal.

3 intersecting golden rectangles (1 : φ) will create the vertices of an icosahedron.
