Due to its extraordinary utility and broad applicability in many areas of applied mathematics (most notably, fully-discretized models of problems in image reconstruction from projections, in image processing, and in intensity-modulated radiation therapy), algorithms for solving convex feasibility problems continue to receive great attention (see, for instance, [2–5] and also [6–10]).

The computation of a projection onto a general closed convex subset is generally difficult. To overcome this difficulty, Fukushima  suggested the so-called relaxed projection method to calculate the projection onto a level set of a convex function by computing a sequence of projections onto half-spaces containing the original level set. In the setting of finite-dimensional Hilbert spaces, this idea was followed by Yang , who introduced the relaxed CQ algorithms for solving SFP (1.1) where the closed convex subsets C and Q are level sets of convex functions.
Motivated and inspired by the research going on in this section, the purpose of this article is to study a two-step iterative algorithm for split feasibility problems such that the strong convergence is guaranteed in infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces. Our result extends and improves the corresponding results of He and Zhao  and some others.

3 Main results
In this section, we shall prove our main theorem.
