COMMENTS

Lucas(Denominator of convergents) get increasingly closer to the values of 10^(Numerator of convergents).

For example,

Lucas(19) = 9349 ~ 10^4, error = 6.51%

Lucas(24) = 103682 ~ 10^5, error = 3.682%

Lucas(43) = 969323029 ~ 10^9, error = 3.068%

Lucas(67) = 100501350283429 ~ 10^14, error = 0.501%

In fact, for sufficiently large values of n, we will have that Lucas(n) ~ ((1+sqrt(5))/2)^n.
