 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Decimal expansion of the solution to n/x = x-n for n-3. n/x = x-n with n=1 gives the Golden Ratio = 1.6180339887... n/x = x-n ==> x^2 - n*x - n = 0 ==> x = (n + sqrt(n^2 + 4*n)) / 2 (Positive Root) n = 3: x = (3 + sqrt(21))/2 = 3.79128784747792... x=3.7912878474... is the shape of a rectangle whose geometric partition (as at A188635) consists of 3 squares, then 1 square, then 3 squares, etc., matching the continued fraction of x, which is [3,1,3,1,3,1,3,1,3,1,...].
