Hi all,

A simple question for you all; posed to me by a friend and I'm too dumb to get it.

Basically he asked what was the value of 'a' if:

a = 2^(0.5) +(((2^(0.5) +((2^(0.5)) + .....

I HOPE that I have the notation right. I get the feeling that the answer is two, but some logic would be nice to go with my answer. Thanks in advance,

Michael
