silver rectangle

A silver rectangle is a rectangle with either the silver ratio for its width-to-length ratio or the ratio 1:2. Like the golden rectangle, both silver rectangles have the property that if we remove from them a square, their ratio remains the same.

FigureĀ 1: Removing the square on the left (demarcated by the dotted line) leaves a smaller silver rectangle on the right.
