Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[a_{1} = \sqrt{2} a _{2} = \sqrt{2\sqrt{2}} a3 = \sqrt{2\sqrt{2\sqrt{2}}} \] and so on... Find a recurrence relation for an+1. and find the limit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is what i get for 1st part ..\[a _{n+1} = \sqrt{2a _{n}}\]but the limits is??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0at 1st i guessing the limits to be square root 2... but that is stupid... i keep using calculator and i think the limit is 2..but i dunno how to show it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, I think we can try to demonstrate the series in a general form and then it might make it easier to evaluate the limit. How's this: we know that \[\sqrt{2{\sqrt{2{\sqrt{2}}}}} = 2^{7/8}.\] Now? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0as Quantum said, we can rewrite the expression in a simpler way as: \[a_1=2^{1/2}a_2=2^{3/4}a_3=2^{7/8}a_4+...\] we can then easily see that: \[a_(n)=2^{{2n1 \over 2n}}a_(n+1)\] now just rearrange to get a(n+1)
