Hi there! 

The relation between the golden ratio/golden rectangle/Fibonacci 
numbers is a really great topic! I'm going to send you a few Web 
addresses related to this question. You can also search the Dr. Math 
archive at    for more answers.   
Lots of pages here on this topic. A great place to start!   
Good introductory pages with nice pictures. There's a nice path 
through them, too.

I hope this helps. Let us know if you have other questions.
