Re: Iterations!!!

It is much too large to post and it has a very interesting story connected to it.

Re: Iterations!!!

The whole process is huge. Whereas the Fibonacci recurrence has 2 terms this one has 1830 terms. The answer is close to a 6000 digit number!

Not yet but the problem will be solved using the idea in post #2.

Re: Iterations!!!

Sure you could understand it! Trouble is I would have trouble explaining it.

Re: Iterations!!!

See that 42, that is the coefficient for x^11. As such it is an answer. If I can find the 10^100 number in that sequence I am home free...

Re: Iterations!!!

Hi;

Here is another goody.

Solve:

This process can be iterated:

And we have the continued fraction of the quadratic
