Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0take the limit of top and bottom sin(0) = 1 (2^2  4) aproaches 0 BUT can never go to zero because you cant divide by zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so as the denominator goes to 0.00000001 or 0.000000000000000001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its ilike this 1/4 then 1/2 then 1/1 then 1/0.000001 then 1/0.0000000000001

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This one can be handled with a little manipulation. The bottom can be expanded to (x2)(x+2). The lim of [sin (x2)]/(x2)]=1. That leaves 1/(x+2). So lim is 1/4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no the bottom cannot be expanded like that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I am guessing by the way these questions are set up that x^24 is not sin of, but just a number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think the its sin of x2 so sin(x2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In that case we are saying the same thing. \[x ^{2}4=(x2)(x+2)\]The difference of two squares.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have had a couple beers. But are you telling me that the above is not the difference of two squares?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0limit as x goes to 2 = sin(x2)/(x^24) 0/0 so Use L'Hopital's rule lim x>2 Cos(x2)/(2x) = Cos (0) / (2*2) = 1/4
