Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hi d4millers, The exponential and trigonometric functions are functions that obtain their limits (some functions don't). Polynomials are another example of functions that obtain their limits. So, in these cases, the limits can be found by substitution of the limitpoint. Here, sub. (1,1) into your equation to get,\[\lim_{(x,y) \rightarrow(1,1)}e^{xy}\cos(x+y)=e^{(1)(1)}\cos((1)+(1))\]\[=e^1{\cos(0)}=e\]
