Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The golden ratio is also called the divine proportion. It equals 1.618 (approx).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Assuming the length is larger than the width 1.618=x/110

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i woulld put 180?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK, assuming one is less than other, I see now...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2180 is too much rounding, I guess. 178 is better, but we are already rounding phi to 1.618 only :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I still say there are 2 answers, why should you divide length by width?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Sure, I agree @estudier. It's a pretty badly formulated question. @computergeek123 should pick between one of two. :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well theres 100, 120, 150 and 180 so i think 180 is best? @bmp

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Bibi is using a software program that allows her to change the shape of a twodimensional figure by making changes to the sides. She starts with a quadrilateral with opposite sides parallel. She stretches the shorter edges of the quadrilateral to make all four sides congruent. Which statement best describes the figure that she created? Answer She changed a kite to a square. She changed a rectangle to a square. She changed a trapezoid to a rhombus.✔ She changed a parallelogram to a rhombus.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The last one, it's just the definition of a trapezoid and a rhombus, so, it's correct :)
