COMMENTS

"(By strange coincidence, the information in a typical continued fraction term is very nearly one decimal digit - actually pi^2/(6 (ln 2) (ln 10)) = 1.0306.) R. W. Gosper. Math-Fun list, April 9, 1998. This constant is the average number of decimal digits necessary to have the equivalent continued fraction representations of a number in base 10. In other words if you have N decimal digits it will give you N/C = N/1.0306 valid partial quotients in average." - Simon Plouffe
