Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Rectangle dimensions (inches) Side a: side a +b : b a/b: (a+b)/a: golden ratio? 5 8 3 5/3= 1.6 8/5=1.6 yes 3 4 1 6 10 4 14 22 8 12 16 4 15 24 9 Because you have to get the ratio of a/b, I added a b column to the chart. The b values I entered come from subtracting the given a value from (a + b).
