Post subject:  Exercise [03.01]  
Since I found the numerical computations we are asked to do here rather annoying (calculating the approximation of order n doesnt help us anything in calculating the approximation of order n+1), I looked around a bit and found a recursion formula for continued fractions significantly simplifying these computations. Consequently, in my solution I first prove this recursion formula and then apply it to the numerical computations in question.
