Update...

"Pat's Blog" took the algebra problem I posed this morning and expanded on it (infinite nested radicals) for further discussion/learning here:

All of which reminded me in turn of an older post by "Division by Zero" blog on "continued fractions" (not exactly the same thing, but similar) here:

And as another tie-in, I'll just note in passing that some of the famous equations discovered by Ramanujan (who I'd just referenced on Monday), fall into the above categories.
