    Smile "geometry relations" grammer problem

    Dear teachers, I'v got an English question: Does the sentence below have any grammer problems? ["Golden block" is a logo which has most geometry relations involving golden ratio.] the phrase "geometry relations" is correct? Or how to say it correctly? Thanks very much!

    Re: "geometry relations" grammer problem

    Note the correct spelling of grammar.
    The sentence is meaningless to me I'm afraid.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Does the sentence below have any grammar problems?

    "Golden block" is a logo which has most geometry relations involving the golden ratio. (I removed the unnecessary brackets.)

    Is the phrase "geometry relations" is correct? Or how to If not, how can I say it correctly?
    Please study my amendments to your post, especially the layout and the correct way to ask your questions.

    Like bhai, I am unable to understand what you are asking.

    I'm pretty sure your "Golden Block" refers to the Golden Rectangle.

    I think you can reach Wikipedia from China. Try this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio If you can read English well, it should be a help to you.

    The Golden ratio is a principle of aethetics used in the field of design for the proportioning of design elements to achieve a pleasing and orderly composition.

    How about : The design of the "Golden Block" (a name I presume) logo is based on the principle of the Golden ratio.

    I don't think there's any need to capitalise "golden" in "golden ratio".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: "geometry relations" grammer problem

    Hi, everyone

    I mean I am designing a website logo named "Golden Block" (not finished yet) similar to those logos on google image


    ( https://www.google.com.hk/search?hl=...2Bratio%2Blogo )


    but my logo has much more geometry relations than those logos involving the golden ratio.


    So I say:

    "Golden Block" is a logo which has most geometry relations involving the golden ratio.


    Hope all of you understand me now, How to say it correctly?


    Thanks again!

    I am afraid most people wouldn't know what you are talking about. I certainly don't, starting with "geometry relations".

    Re: "geometry relations" grammer problem

    I'm not really with you either. I can only think you might mean something like "The Golden Block logo incorporates many patterns based on the golden ratio". That still assumes that people know what the golden ratio is. I only know what it is because my ex-flatmate is a photographer and he showed me examples used in art, architecture and photography.
