Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3everybody jumps for l'hospital... that should really be a last resort

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3is this\[\lim_{x\to0}{1\cos^6x\over x\sin^5x}\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think it would make this easier to use l'hopitals rule for this on an exam though, just to save time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Often you are not allowed to use l'hospital if the problem is\[\lim_{x\to0}{1\cos(6x)\over x\sin(5x)}\]it can be solved fairly easily without l'hospital. so far, however, @tamiashi has not replied to me, so I don't want to go ahead with either until I get a response.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry for being late in response, I'm not allowed to use L'hospital Can you show me how to solve it without L'hospital?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3is it the first way I wrote it or the second? are 5 and 6 exponents, or coefficients of the argument?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3first multiply by\[\frac{1+\cos(6x)}{1+\cos(6x)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you then have\[{1\cos^2(6x)\over x\sin(5x)(1+\cos(6x))}=\frac{1\cos^2(6x)}{x}\cdot\frac1{\sin(5x)}\cdot\frac1{1+\cos(6x)}\]now multiply by \(\frac xx\) to get\[{1\cos^2(6x)\over x\sin(5x)(1+\cos(6x))}=\frac{1\cos^2(6x)}{x^2}\cdot\frac x{\sin(5x)}\cdot\frac1{1+\cos(6x)}\] manipluate this through trig identities and algebra sp that you can utilize\[\lim_{x\to0}\frac{\sin x}x=1\]to get your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alternative : use the identity : sin^2 (3x) = (1cos(6x))/2 > 1  cos(6x) = 2 sin^2 (3x) so, it can be : dw:1361606909900:dw
