The golden ratio. The ancient Greeks thought that the
most pleasing shape for a rectangle was one for which the
ratio of the length to the width was approximately 8 to 5,
the golden ratio. If the length of a rectangular painting is
2 ft longer than its width, then for what dimensions would
the length and width have the golden ratio?
