Given the sequence of isosceles right triangles P to A sub n to A sub n+1
with P to A sub n+1 = A sub n to A sub n+1 and with P to A sub 1 = 1
Find the smallest value of n such that A sub n to A sub n+1 < 0.001
one of responces i got was this on a different forum:
"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""" """"""""""""""""""""""""""
To try to use formal algebraic symbolism, the process and symbolic form is tough to create; but if you have access to a BASIC language then you might find your answer through this, extremely unrefined program:
dim S(50)
i=0
input "Initial Length Hypotenuse? ";So
LET S(1)=1
LET i=1
FOR i=1 to 40
'i=i+1
S(i) = So/(sqr(2))
So=S(i)
print i;" loopwhiletest ";S(i)
i=i+1
NEXT i
END
