Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sin(x+h) = sin(x)cos(h) + sin(h)cos(x) sin(x)cos(h) + sin(h)cos(x)  sin(x) = sin(x)(cos(h)1) + sin(h)cos(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{cos(h)1}{h} \implies 0;\ and \frac{sin(h)}{h} \implies 1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[d(\sin x)/dx=\lim_{dx \rightarrow 0} [\sin(x+dx) \sin(x)]/[x+dxx]\] \[d(\sin x)/dx=\lim_{dx \rightarrow 0} [2\cos(x+dx/2)*\sin(dx/2)]/[dx]\] \[= \lim_{dx \rightarrow 0} [\cos(x+dx/2)]*\ [\sin(dx/2)]/[dx/2]\] =cos(x)
