FORMULA

10*(3 - sqrt(5)) = 30 - 10*sqrt(5) = (5 - sqrt(5))^2 = 20/phi^2.

2 * Sum_{i > 1} (-1)^i/(F(i)F(i + 1)) = 3 - sqrt(5), where F(i) is the i-th Fibonacci number. This formula comes from John D. Watson, Jr.'s solution to Azarian's Problem B-1133 in the Fibonacci Quarterly. Azarian originally posed the problem as an infinite alternating sum explicitly written out for the first dozen terms or so. See the Azarian links above. - Alonso del Arte, Aug 25 2016

EXAMPLE

20/phi^2 = 7.6393202250021030359082633...

3 - sqrt(5) = 0.76393202250021030359082633... (with offset 0).
