FORMULA

From Peter Bala, Nov 17 2019: (Start)

Related simple continued fraction expansions:

tan(1/2) = [0; 1, 1, 4, 1, 8, 1, 12, 1, 16, 1, 20, 1, ...]. See A019425.

2*tan(1/2) = [1, 10, 1, 3, 1, 26, 1, 7, 1, 42, 1, 11, 1, 58, 1, 15, 1, 74, 1, 19, 1, 90, ...]

(1/2)*tan(1/2) = [0; 3, 1, 1, 1, 18, 1, 5, 1, 34, 1, 9, 1, 50, 1, 13, 1, 66, 1, 17, 1, 82, ...].

tan(1/2)/(1 - tan(1/2)) = [1, 4, 1, 8, 1, 12, 1, 16, 1, 20, 1, 24, ...]

2*tan(1/2)/(1 - tan(1/2)) = [2, 2, 2, 4, 2, 6, 2, 8, 2, 10, 2, 12, ...]

4*tan(1/2)/(1 - tan(1/2)) = [4, 1, 4, 2, 4, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 4, 6, 4, 7, ...]. (End)
