    limit superior of sequence

    Let (x_n) be a bounded sequence. For each n \in \mathbb{N} , let y_n=x_{2n} and z_n=x_{2n-1}. Prove that
    \limsup{x_n}=\max({\limsup{y_n},\limsup{z_n}}).

    I tried using the identity \max(x,y)=\frac{1}{2}{(x+y-|x-y|)}, but it can't seem to work... can anyone help me out?
