    Sine is negative in quadrant 3 and 4, so if \[\sin \frac{ \pi }{ 3 } = \frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 2 }\] then \[\sin -\frac{ \pi }{ 3 }= -\frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 2 }\]

    You just need to find the positive radian measure, which is \[\frac{ \pi }{ }\] and then translate it accordingly to find which negative value is correlated with the positive radian measure

    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow +\infty}\sin \left(\frac{ \pi x }{ 2-3x }\right) = \sin\left( \lim_{x \rightarrow +\infty} \frac{ \pi x }{ 2-3x }\right)\] as noted above you can rewrite \[ \frac{ \pi x }{ 2-3x } = \frac{ \pi }{\frac{2}{x} -3} \]

    Alright! Alright! I solved it this way! By during the time I was trying to solve this I figured out a second way! Tell me if this is correct: Just taking the derivative of both denominator and numerator and then we are done. Can I apply this to ANY limit? Because here it works!

    if you're taking the derivative you'll have to use chain rule on the whole thing, sin (whatever's inside) and then * whatever is inside.

    no, use chain rule. use \[ \lim_{x \rightarrow +\infty}\sin \left(\frac{ \pi x }{ 2-3x }\right) = \sin\left( \lim_{x \rightarrow +\infty} \frac{ \pi x }{ 2-3x }\right) \]
