Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes.. now apply the derivative in numerator and seperately in denominator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm please check the derivative in denominator again.. i think its wrong.. look you have to x in there so i believe you have to find derivative with product rule.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0to compute\(\frac{d}{dx}\left(x\sin x\right)\) you need to use the product rule.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[=\lim_{x\rightarrow \pi}\frac{\cos x}{\sin x +x\cos x}\]\[=\frac{0}{1+\pi\cdot 0}\]\[=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i believe cos pi = 1 so how come got 0 in numerator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or wait, sorry I meant I had the wrong numerator the numberator should be sine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\lim_{x\rightarrow \pi}\frac{\sin x}{\sin x +x\cos x}\]Still works out to 0/1=0
