Which Spiral Is Not an Algebraic Spiral in Persona 3 Reload?

The correct answer is that A is not an algebraic spiral. Unlike the other three shown during class, A is a logarithmic spiral rather than algebraic, differing from the other three.

Correctly answering the question will reward you with a Charm point to help you level up your social stats. While you won’t get a whole level with this alone, it’ll go a long way toward maxing out your skills.

Ms. Miyahara, the teacher for your mathematics class, also gives some fun trivia throughout this lesson by describing the logarithmic spiral as one commonly found in nature, particularly on things like a nautilus shell and sunflower seeds.

The teacher further describes each spiral, educating you on each type shown in the image. While B is the Archimedean spiral, C is a parabolic spiral, and D is a lituus. You can graph all three algebraic spirals by means of algebraic equations, leaving A as the non-algebraic logarithmic spiral.

While these all have various applications in the real world, you won’t have to think about this during your Persona 3 Reload playthrough. You’ll find plenty more questions throughout your classes, but this specific one won’t appear more than once.

Similarly, previous ones, such as what phrase symbolizes Summer and the Jomon Period waste dump questions, were class-specific questions that you won’t have to worry about again. However, if you do additional playthroughs of Persona 3, keeping these in mind will help you save some time.
