golden ratio.)
I can't read Mathematica well enough to figure out what number this is
the continued fraction for. (It isn't sqrt(12500).)
Second, how does this relate to the golden ratio? There is no
explanation or reference. (It appears the number approximates 100*phi,
but there's still no detail - how accurate (actually equal?), how is
the sequence of approximations derived, etc. etc.)
