COMMENTS

This is an approximation to Pi.

6*(phi+1)/5 is not equal to Pi, although some have claimed this (see Dudley). - Kellen Myers, Oct 04 2013

FORMULA

Limit of A022089(n+2)/A022088(n) as n approaches infinity.

6*(phi + 1)/5 = 6*phi^2/5 = 3(3 + sqrt(5))/5 = 9/5 + sqrt(9/5). - Charles R Greathouse IV, Sep 13 2013

Equals 24/(5-sqrt(5))^2. - Joost Gielen, Sep 20 2013
