%N Decimal expansion of ratio-sum for A296257; see Comments.

%C Suppose that A = (a(n)), for n >=0, is a sequence, and g is a real number such that a(n)/a(n-1) -> g. The ratio-sum for A is |a(1)/a(0) - g| + |a(2)/a(1) - g| + . . . , assuming that this series converges. For A = A296257, we have g = (1 + sqrt(5))/2, the golden ratio (A001622). See A296425-A296434 for related ratio-sums and A296452-A296461 for related limiting power-ratios.
