%N Decimal expansion of (7+sqrt(85))/6.

%C Decimal expansion of the length/width ratio of a (7/3)-extension rectangle. See A188640 for definitions of shape and r-extension rectangle.

%C A (7/3)-extension rectangle matches the continued fraction [2,1,2,2,1,2,2,1,2,2,1,...] for the shape L/W=(7+sqrt(85))/6. This is analogous to the matching of a golden rectangle to the continued fraction [1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,...]. Specifically, for the (7/3)-extension rectangle, 2 squares are removed first, then 1 square, then 2 squares, then 2 squares,..., so that the original rectangle of shape (7+sqrt(85))/6 is partitioned into an infinite collection of squares.
