%C An algebraic number with degree 4 and denominator 2; minimal polynomial 16x^4 - 1000x^2 + 3125. - _Charles R Greathouse IV_, Apr 25 2016

%C This equals in a regular pentagon inscribed in a unit circle with vertices V0 = (x, y) = (1, 0), and V1..V4 in the counterclockwise sense, one tenth of the y-coordinate of the midpoint of side (V1,V2), named M1: M1_y = (2*sqrt(3 - phi) + sqrt(7 - 4*phi))/4 = sqrt(3 + 4*phi)/4. The x-coordinate is M1_x = -1/4. - _Wolfdieter Lang_, Jan 09 2018
