What is the golden ratio?

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

does it have any thing to do with fibonacci numbers?

^Yeah, that's how I would solve it too. :)

110 is not correct. :P

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

It's 177.98 @computergeek123 :)

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

68 (approx) 110/68 = 1.618

so i woulld put 180?

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

bmpBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
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?

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

well theres 100, 120, 150 and 180 so i think 180 is best? @bmp

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.

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