\[\sqrt{2}=1+(\sqrt{2}1)=1+\cfrac{1}{\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}1}}\] \[1+\cfrac{1}{\frac{1}{\sqrt{2}1}*\frac{\sqrt{2}+1}{\sqrt{2}+1}}=1+\cfrac{1}{\frac{\sqrt{2}+1}{21}}\] a little of both

that is correct so far, but im unsure how that helps us proceed

\[3+\frac{1}{\pi3}\] \[3+\frac{1}{.14159...}\frac{10}{10}\] \[3+\frac{10}{1+(1.4159...)1}\] \[3+\cfrac{10}{1+\cfrac{1}{(1.4159...)1}}\] \[3+\cfrac{10}{1+\cfrac{1}{(.4159...)}\cfrac{10}{10}}\] \[3+\cfrac{10}{1+\cfrac{10}{4+(4.159...)4}}\] that seems to be a run on it, but you would have to know the value of pi to begin with id assume
