## Homework Statement

Let [itex](x_{n})[/itex] be a bounded sequence. For each [itex]n \in \mathbb{N}[/itex], let [itex]y_{n}=x_{2n}[/itex] and [itex]z_{n}=x_{2n-1}[/itex]. Prove that

[itex]\lim \sup {x_n} = \max (\lim \sup {y_n},\lim \sup {z_n})[/itex]

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Don't know if I'm at the right path but I've tried letting [itex]M= \lim \sup {x_n}[/itex], [itex]M_{1}= \lim \sup {y_n}[/itex], and [itex]M_{2} = \lim \sup {z_n}[/itex] and see that [itex]M \geq \max (M_{1}, M_{2})[/itex]. How do I proceed from here to prove that [itex]M = \max (M_{1}, M_{2})[/itex]? Thank you!
