Is it possible to this sequence?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    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?
