# Math Help - Find the Width of Garden

1. ## Find the Width of Garden

An artist wants her painting to be in the shape of a Golden rectangle. If the length of the painting is 36 inches, then what should be the width?

2. Are you familiar with the Golden Ratio?.

There is lots if one does a google search.

The ratio is length to width of $\frac{\sqrt{5}+1}{2}:1$

This is an interesting thing to investigate. Do a search.

It is also related to the Fibonacci numbers.

That is $\lim_{n\to \infty}\frac{f_{n+1}}{f_{n}}=\text{golden ratio}$

3. ## no.........
