Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Break it up in parts lim x and lim sin 2/x. For sin 2/x, look in your notes for what happens when a number say a is over in finity. Therefore it becomes sin of that quantity.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0however i am not getting the answer by applying the limit the following way: sin(2/x)<= 1 so xsin(2/x)<=xsin2/x triangle inequality now if i apply limit, lim x=infinity since it diverges, the smaller ones are bound to diverge. but in effect the answer is 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can someone explain as to why? you use taylor polynomial, you get 2, but with comparison test you get infinity. confused ;S

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay. here it is lim x (2/x) {sin(2/x)/ (2/x)} lim 2 lim {sin(2/x)/ (2/x)} 2*1 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and the reason as to why sin(2/x)/(2/x) = 1 is because its similar to sin x/x when x> 0 so lim sin x/x = 1.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, I was researching for my own learning. The proof is let u =sin 2x, then x = 2/u; limits changed to u goes to zero. It becomes limit as u goes to zero of (2 sin u)/u. Of course (sin u)/u is an identity equal to one. Therefore answer two. Good job rsaad2.
