Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lim_{x \rightarrow infinity} (\ln(cbrt(x)))/sinx\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lnx^(1/3)/sinx = (1/3)lnx / sinx ? i thinkk..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0actually apparently infinity, infinity is not the correct answer.... wolfram lied so if you help me come to the correct answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0?? \[\lim_{x\to \infty}\frac{\ln(\sqrt[3]{x})}{\sin(x)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0makes no sense since you cannot take the log of a negative number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so there is no limit, as the numerator is undefined if \(x\leq 0\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh crap it is \[\lim_{x \rightarrow +infinity}\] sorry....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\sin(x)\) has no limit either as it is periodic and takes on all values between 1 and 1 infinitely often

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well still no limit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0numerator is going to infinity, but denominator is not going to any specific number as i wrote above.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in other words it swings wildly between large positive and large negative values as sine varies between 1 and 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so ultimately its undefined

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes for sure undefined

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so with that being said, anytime sinx is in my denomonator i know that the function must be undefined?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well no, the numerator could go to zero, so the whole thing could go to zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lim_{x\to\infty}\frac{e^{x}}{\sin(x)}\] for example would be zero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so are there any good tips and tricks you could tell me to help me understand this sort of material

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no tricks really, you have to make sure you know what it going on, and don't for example us l'hopital's rule unless it is applicable, i.e. unless you are in indeterminate form, which you are not here. in your example you do not have \(\frac{\infty}{\infty}\) and so you cannot use l\hopital and get zero for an answer!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0see im not sure how to determine whether i am in that form or not

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0plug in the number and check or imagine what happens as x gets large if you are going to infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in your example as x gets large so does \(\sqrt[3]{x}\) and therefore so does \(\ln(\sqrt[3]{x})\) but the prolem is that sine does not get large and does not have a limit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so basically what i am saying is that in this problem there is no trick or gimmick. you just have to imagine what happens as x gets bigger and bigger
