do you know they define continuity at a point? Here the question should be, "is the function continuous at x=0?"

To test the continuity of function at x=0, find the limit when x>0 And the find f(0). If \[\\lim_{x \to 0}f(x)=f(0)\] the the function is continuous at x=0

Lets rewrite the function:\[\frac{\sin(7x)}{\sin(6x)}=\frac{\frac{\sin(7x)}{7x}}{\frac{\sin(6x)}{7x}}\]Now multiply the numerator and denominator by 7/6:\[\frac{\frac{7}{6}\cdot \frac{\sin(7x)}{7x}}{\frac{7}{6}\cdot \frac{\sin(6x)}{7x}}=\frac{\frac{7}{6}\cdot \frac{\sin(7x)}{7x}}{\frac{\sin(6x)}{6x}}\]Now you can take the limit as x goes to 0 using the fact that:

\[\lim_{x \to 0}f(x)=\lim_{x \to 0}\frac{\sin 7x}{\sin 6x}\]\[=\lim_{x \to 0}\frac{\frac{\sin 7x}{7x}}{\frac{\sin 6x}{6x}}\times \frac{6}{7}\]\[=\frac{6}{7}\] Also, f(0)=6/7 since\[\lim_{x \to 0}f(x)=f(0)\]The function is continuous at x=0

It is already mentioned above but then i would like to post it again. \[\lim_{x \to 0}\frac{\sin \theta}{\theta}=1\]
