    a continued fraction can be constructed by taking subsequent recpiricals

    \[\frac pq=\frac{1}{q/p}\] i was wondering how they got it for like sqrt(2)

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

    1+pi -1 = pi 1 + 1/(1/pi) -1 = pi correct?

    \[\large{1+\pi -1=\pi}\] \[\large{1+\cfrac{1}{\frac{1}{\pi}}-1=\pi}\]

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

    you would most likely want to reciprocate the last 2 terms together

    hmm\[4+\pi-4\] \[4+\frac{1}{\pi-4}\] i cant see it from there either

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