Find the value of $$6+\frac{1}{2+\frac{1}{6+\frac{1}{2+\frac{1}{6+\cdots}}}}$$. Your answer should be in the form of $$a+b\sqrt{c}$$ where no factor of c (other than 1) is a square. Find a+b+c

Like so:

I'll leave you to solve the quadratic equation.

That helped a lot! Thanks . But wouldn't a quadratic equation have two solutions?

Yes but would they both be a valid solution to the original?  The original expression has to be positive.  Will that be true of the soutions to the quadratic?
