The Greeks of long ago believed that the golden ratio for the sides of a rectangle are in a proportion of 1 : 1,618. They believed that rectangles that adhere to this ratio are the most pleasing to the eye. The width of a rectangle is 4,5 cm. What should its length be for it to adhere to the golden ratio?

1 : 1,618                                                              1x= 1,618 × 4,5
4,5 : x                                                                       x= 7,281

The length of the rectangle should be 7,281 cm.
