Somebody posted a problem on this forum that I haven't been able to find again and was wondering what the answer was....

it was find the limit of the sequence,

I used a computer to help me see what it would be but after being in the bottom most term i get the value is something like .707106781186

which looks to me like the limit is

just wanted to know if there was some trick the poster knew that I couldn't figure out.
