\[\frac{5}{12}=\frac{1}{\cfrac{12}{5}}=\cfrac{1}{2+\cfrac25}=\cfrac{1}{2+\cfrac1{\cfrac52}}=\cfrac{1}{2+\cfrac1{2+\frac12}}\]stuff

This is something new, I think. A variant on polynomial division?

I do think its a variation of polynomial division The answer is $$1+{4 \over x \frac{5}{4}} +{ \frac{21}{16} \over x + \frac{1} {4}}$$

I guess it's poly division as opposed to the usual integer division. It's not that clear how u get rid of the escalator, though....
