### I think it's some sort of a progression, but I'm not sure

1/2x +1/2 (1/2x + 1/2 (1/2x +1/2 (1/2x + ... = y, then x = ?

Would really appreciate, if you'd help me out on this one guys

Hi;

You could notice

That the boxed region is just y again and say,

x = y

Or you can expand it out,

x = y

Welcome to the forum.

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
