Infinite Continued Fractions

In this article we are going to look at infinite continued fractions - continued fractions that do not terminate.

Explore the hyperbolic functions sinh and cosh using what you know about the exponential function.

Hyperbolic Thinking

Stage: 5 Challenge Level:
Start by looking at the values of $A^2(x), B^2(x), A(2x), B(2x), A(x)B(x)$ and see if you can spot any simple relationships linking them.

To differentiate the two functions use the expression
$$\frac{d}{dx}\left(a^x\right) = \ln(a) a^x$$

Consider simple values of the functions, such as $n\pi$ and $\pm 1$.
