My teacher told our class that the can be calculated by:
I don't understand how or why this works. I understand that as the denominators' continue on forever, the 1 + (fraction) changes ever so slightly. How do I go about solving this?
But I'm curious... What if I wanted to include a different set of numbers in a similar fashion?
Thank you for your help.
My gut feeling is, eventually, this number will reach infinity, if x > -1.
*note* I'm not used to the math programming language, so I know what is appearing is slightly off. If need be, I'll transcribe my intentions without the math programming language.
