COMMENTS

n/x = x-n with n=1 gives the Golden Ratio = 1.6180339887...

Equals n +n/(n +n/(n +n/(n +....))) for n = 7.  See also A090388. - Stanislav Sykora, Jan 23 2014

FORMULA

n/x = x-n ==> x^2 - n*x - n = 0 ==> x = (n + sqrt(n^2 + 4*n)) / 2 (Positive Root) n = 7: x = (7 + sqrt(77))/2 = 7.88748219369606...
