What is the ratio of the width to length of a folded sheet of paper if the rectangle formed when the sheet is folded in half (as shown below) is similar to the original rectangular sheet? Express your answer as a common fraction in simplest radical form. (Assume the width of the original sheet of paper becomes the length of the folded sheet.) 

Should there be some relationship between the length and width? I can't seem to find it.

The ratio is sqrt(2)/4.

That isn't correct.
