work out the value of the following:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1/2*sqrt[1/2 + (1/2)*(1/2)]sqrt[1/2 + (1/2)*sqrt[1/2 + (1/2)*(1/2)]]...

Any help is appreciated.

Thnak you.

what mite b of interest is the fact that it looks similar to the bottom of Viete's famous formula for pi (employing for the first time an infinite product):

[ i derived the following from cos(theta/2^1)*cos(theta/2^2)*cos(theta/2^3)...cos(theta/2^n) ]

pi=2/[sqrt[1/2]*sqrt[1/2 + (1/2)*sqrt[1/2]]sqrt[1/2 + (1/2)*sqrt[1/2 + (1/2)*sqrt[1/2]]]...]
