would lim(x approches infinity) (sqrt(x^2+1))/(2x+1) be DNE since it would basically be infinity/infinity?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is indeterminate form, so you can't say it doesn't exist. You will have to manipulate it to use L'hopital's

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\lim_{x\rightarrow\infty}\frac{\sqrt{x^2+1}}{2x+1}=\lim_{x\rightarrow\infty}\frac{\sqrt{\frac {x^2}{x^2}+\frac1{x^2}}}{\frac{2x}x+\frac1x}=\lim_{x\rightarrow\infty}\frac{\sqrt{1}}{2}=\frac12\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3@redham L'hopital's is not the best idea.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, you can map a limit here.\[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\Big(\frac{\sqrt{x^2+1}}{2x+1}\Big)=\frac{\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\Big(\frac{d\sqrt{x^2+1}}{dx}\Big)}{\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\Big(\frac{d(2x+1)}{dx}\Big)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\lim_{x\rightarrow\infty}\frac{\sqrt{\frac {x^2}{x^2}+\frac1{x^2}}}{\frac{2x}x+\frac1x}=\lim_{x\rightarrow\infty}\frac{\sqrt{1+1/x^2}}{2+1/x}\] \(1/x^2\) and \(1/x\) are almost 0 when x goes to infinity. so only 1in numerator and 2 in denominator are left.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@klimenkov I was actually thinking of squaring the denominator under the radical and then using L'Hopital's. Not from the start

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\lim_{\Delta x\rightarrow0}\frac{\sin(x+\Delta x)\sin x}{\Delta x}=\lim_{\Delta x\rightarrow0}\frac{\sin x \cos\Delta x+\cos x\sin \Delta x\sin x}{\Delta x}=\]\[\lim_{\Delta x\rightarrow0}\frac{\sin x (\cos\Delta x1)}{\Delta x}+\lim_{\Delta x\rightarrow0}\frac{\cos x\sin \Delta x}{\Delta x}=\cos x\] Try to get it. Why is it so? Why does the first limit equals to 0 and why does the second equals to cos x?
