(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

0<y0<x0

x1=(x0+y0)/2

y1=[tex]\sqrt{x0y0}[/tex]

in general

Xn+1=(xn+yn)/2

Yn+1=[tex]\sqrt{XnYn}[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

none

3. The attempt at a solution

I have no idea

I tried to solve for Xn and substituting that into another equation...

however, I don't know how to simplify it down to one single variable....

How do I take the limit of the sequence, so that I can find the relationship
