I need to divide 34 bars into golden sections. The ultimate aim is to subdivide those sections to create botha macro and micro structural process.
So first I need to divide 34 bars into the 2 sections and then those sections need to be divided and so on and so forth. Fractal like I suppose.

Can someone explain the method? I wont be satisfied unless I understand the proof inside out and can adapt it myself. I already feel tacky for asking :-(

so its x:34 = 0.6180339985218034

Im a musician so my algebra is rather sketchy I know I need x = 34 *0.6180339985218034or something like that

Not clear what you're trying to do.

Do you want to divide them in the ratio ?

If so, the fractions that the parts take are , times 34 to get the amount.

Ah I need to divide say 10 bars into 2 parts which are in the golden ratio (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio). I need to then divide those in the same fashion. Essentially I want to produce a rectangle divided into 2 parts corresponding to the golden ratio

In that case just, if the side has length s, then multiply s by the two fractions I have and you'll have the required lengths to split the line (and the area of the rectangle) into the golden ratio.
