    I don't see any quick way without l'Hopital.

    If l'Hopital doesn't work the first time but gives you the condition for it again, you can repeat it. You might have better luck the second time around.

    One way is to use l'Hopital, but a faster way is to use the linear approximations for sine and tangent. The answer is 1/2.

    THE DIFFERENTIAL IS SEC^2(X)/3+COS(x).numerator is 1 and denominator is 4 answer is 1/4 how did you get 1/2??????

    pasta! skywalker94 is right! Using l'Hopital, we'll get 1/2. \[\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}(\tan2x/(3x+sinx))=\lim_{x \rightarrow 0}[2(1+\tan^{2}2x)/(3+cosx)]=1/2\]

    use expansion method it is the fastest.... tanx = x + x^3/3............sinx = x - x^3/3!
