Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have a case of 0/0, so use l'hospital's rule: \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \frac{\pi}{2}} \frac{\cos(x)}{x\frac{\pi}{2}}=\lim_{x \rightarrow \frac{\pi}{2}}\frac{\frac{d}{dx}\cos(x)}{\frac{d}{dx}(x\frac{\pi}{2})}=\lim_{x \rightarrow \frac{\pi}{2}} \frac{\sin(x)}{1}=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks. We haven't gotten to l'hopital's rule yet (in my calc class), so we're doing this by algebraic manipulation. I had hit a wall, though, and hoped someone could give me some a suggestion as to how I might proceed assuming derivatives can't be used.
