Use\[Lim (x \rightarrow 0) \frac{sinx}{x}=1\rightarrow sinx=x\]

Why is this true? It's obvious if you graph it http://fooplot.com/#W3sidHlwZSI6MCwiZXEiOiJzaW4oeCkiLCJjb2xvciI6IiMwMDAwMDAifSx7InR5cGUiOjAsImVxIjoieCIsImNvbG9yIjoiIzAwMDAwMCJ9LHsidHlwZSI6MTAwMH1d sinx=x when you move closer to the origin.

Yes, but, remember that \[nx\] is not of the form \[nx^2\] so the equivalent does not necessarily apply. :( Now, were we to show that \[\sin nx^2 \sim x^2, x \to 0\] that would make more sense... How would we ago about doing that, though?

\[ \lim_{x \rightarrow 0}\frac{4x^2}{\sin(4x^2)} \times {3 \over 4} \\ \lim_{4x^2 \rightarrow 0}\frac{4x^2}{\sin(4x^2)} \times {3 \over 4} = {3 \over 4}\]

\[ \lim_{4x^2 \rightarrow 0}\frac{1}{\frac{\sin(4x^2)}{4x^2}} \times {3 \over 4} = {3 \over 4} \]

Or\[\lim(x \rightarrow 0) \frac{3x^2}{\sin(4x^2)}=\lim(x \rightarrow 0) \frac{3x^2}{4x^2}=\lim(x \rightarrow 0) \frac{3}{4}\]

Ahh, yes, again, although I don't know how to prove they're asymptotically equal, I should be able to solve it, now, thanks.
