Heh, 30 hours? Jeez, talk about no patience...
Nope, definitely not
I do not think he is ever goint to reply back. It has been about 30 hours now.
Just a joke.
Well, us as a forum community. You knew what I meant.
"thank us" ???
Unless he's rude, in which case he'll look at the answer and not bother to thank us. It's been known to happen.
He'll call back.
Funny, we never heard back from the person who asked the question.
I forgot to put the url back:
I tried it in Excel, and it reaches 1.618034 after 20 terms ...
Number of the form is nested radical. Herschfeld (1935) proved that a nested radical of real nonnegative terms converges iff is bounded
siva.eas, your answer works if there is a final term in the sequence and that it is indeed 1. But exactly how one would show that a final term exists at infinity is beyond me for this equation.
thanks, krassi_holmz
Great!
