Various Valleys, More Mountains (Posted on 2006-07-26) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Fold a strip of paper in half two times and unfold. Put the strip on its side and adjust each angle to 90 degrees. It will look something like this:

If you could fold the paper in half an infinite number of times and adjust every angle to 90 degrees what appears to be a fractal would be formed.

Is it a fractal? If so, what is its fractal dimension?
