COMMENTS

Decimal expansion of the length/width ratio of a (4/3)extension rectangle.
See A188640 for definitions of shape and rextension rectangle.
A (4/3)extension rectangle matches the continued fraction [1,1,6,1,1,1,1,6,1,1,1,1,6,...] for the shape L/W= (2+sqrt(13))/3. This is analogous to the matching of a golden rectangle to the continued fraction [1,1,1,1,1,1,1,...]. Specifically, for the (4/3)extension rectangle, 1 square is removed first, then 1 square, then 6 squares, then 1 square, then 1 square,..., so that the original rectangle is partitioned into an infinite collection of squares.
