# Golden Rectangle

A rectangle whose side lengths are in the golden ratio is called a golden rectangle.
Golden rectangles have the property of leaving a smaller golden rectangle when a square with side lengths equal to the width of the original rectangle is cut from them.
The resulting rectangle is similar to the original rectangle as both are golden rectangles.

### Extra

Golden Rectangle in Nature

Ammonites are a group of extinct shellfish whose shell had a spiral shape. A peculiarity of the shell of an ammonite is that its length and width are in golden ratio. That means the shell fits into a golden rectangle.
