%N Denominators of the continued fraction convergents of log_10((1+sqrt(5))/2).

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

%C For example,

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

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

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

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

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

%F A217686(n) = A217684(n)*A217686(n-1) + A217686(n-2).

%o (PARI) default(realprecision, 21000); for(i=1, 100, print(contfracpnqn(contfrac(log((1+sqrt(5))/2)/log(10), 0, i))[2, 1]))
