Assistance on a recursive proof

Define a sequence of numbers A_{i} by: A_{0} = 2, A_{n+1} = A_{n}/2 + 1/A_{n }(for n greater than or equal to 1). Prove that A_{n }less than or equal to sqrt(2) + 1/2^{n} for all n greater than or equal to 0. I think it's a safe bet that induction should be used here. I'm having trouble finding the inductive step though maybe just cause I'm not feeling particularly well today. Help is always appreciated.

Hey kkar.

As an alternative, have you tried expanding out the sequence using definitions for A_n+k in terms of all the ones less than n+k?
