    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?

    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}
