Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use lhopitals rule which is \[\frac{\frac{d}{dx}[\sin(2x)]}{\frac{d}{dx}[\sin(3x)]}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3If you don't yet know l'Hopitals rule, I assume you do know already that the limit as x > 0 of (sin x) / x is 1. Now write\[\frac{\sin 2x }{\sin 3x} = \frac{2}{3} \frac{\sin 2x/(2x)}{\sin 3x/(3x)}\] Then you observe that the limits of the ratios of sin over x are all 1 and hence the answer is 2/3.
