You need to find a balance between the two.

Help me evaluate the infinite series of

\[\displaystyle 1 + \sqrt {2 + \sqrt[3] {3+ \sqrt[4] {4 + \sqrt[5] {5 +......}}}}\].

The only thing I know is that it is less than 3, because of an identity by Ramanujan.Since it is above 2.9, we can find a good approximation.I dont think a closed form exists. Bogdan Simeonov · 1 year, 9 months ago

@Bryan Lee Shi Yang I don't have any solution but out of curiosity, just to find out, I approximated it and got 2.911.

I made an equation ((((x-1)^2-2)^3-3)^4-4)^4........=x which gives 2.911 Archit Boobna · 1 year, 9 months ago
