It has been known that the Hosoya index of caterpillar graph can be calculated as the numerator of the simple continued fraction. Recently in [MATCH Commun. Math. Comput. Chem. 2020, 84 (2), 399-428], the author introduces a more general graph called caterpillar-bond graph and shows that its Hosoya index can be calculated as the numerator of the general continued fraction.

In this paper, we show how the Hosoya index of the graph with non-uniform ring structure can be calculated from the negative continued fraction. We also give the relation between some radial graphs and multidimensional continued fractions in the sense of the Hosoya index.
