From what I understand, they could be used to exactly represent some irrational numbers

So, could they represent any root of an nth degree polynomial equation?

Specially where n>4, since 5th degree roots are not guaranteed to have an algebraic representation.

-------------------------------

And if they do, will there be a possibility to have a quintic formula which isn't an algebraic solution, but rather an continued fraction solution
