The example given is x-(1/x)+(10/x^3) which is F(sqrt5)=(6/sqrt5)

f' = 1 + 2/x^2 - 6/x^4

= (x^4 + 2x^2 - 6)/x^4

f'=0 when x^4 + 2x^2 - 6 = 0

x^2 = -1 ± √7

-1 - √7 < 0. so we have

x^2 = -1 + √7

x = ±√(√7 - 1)

we want x in (0,∞), so

f(1.28287) = 1.451

or, more exactly,

f(√(√7 - 1)) = √((97√7 - 143)/54)
