The golden ratio is also called the divine proportion. It equals 1.618 (approx).

Assuming the length is larger than the width 1.618=x/110

@drpeppergal , according to wikipedia, the ratio of sequential elements of the Fibonacci sequence approaches the golden ratio asymptotically.

Typo: it should be \[\LARGE \Phi^n = Fib(n) \Phi + Fib(n1) \]

so i woulld put 180?

OK, assuming one is less than other, I see now...

180 is too much rounding, I guess. 178 is better, but we are already rounding phi to 1.618 only :)

I still say there are 2 answers, why should you divide length by width?

Sure, I agree @estudier. It's a pretty badly formulated question. @computergeek123 should pick between one of two. :)

Bibi 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.

The last one, it's just the definition of a trapezoid and a rhombus, so, it's correct :)
