COMMENTS

Decimal expansion of the length/width ratio of a sqrt(28)-extension rectangle.  See A188640 for definitions of shape and r-extension rectangle.

A sqrt(28)-extension rectangle matches the continued fraction [5,2,9,5,2,687,6,4,1,2,2,...] for the shape L/W=sqrt(7)+sqrt(8).  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 sqrt(28)-extension rectangle, 5 squares are removed first, then 2 squares, then 9 squares, then 5 squares,..., so that the original rectangle of shape sqrt(7)+sqrt(8) is partitioned into an infinite collection of squares.
