Hi Diana, the function "FromContinuedFraction" will convert a countinued fraction into a "ordinary" number representation. You can then use this number in your formula. Of course this will only work if the infinite continued fraction is periodic (or terminates, but then it is not infinite). Otherwise, you can not represent the number in a form "FromContinuedFraction" will swallow.
