Is it possible to this sequence?

  1. Dec 8, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    given:

    Vn+1=Vn*cos(pi/2^(n+2)) and Vn= pi/2


    2. Relevant equations

    Write Vn in terms of n


    3. The attempt at a solution

    how can i start this. I already know that -1<cosx<1 and i've already proved that this sequence is a negative sequence. Then our teacher said if its possible to write Vn in terms of n?
