Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yep.. working on it. Did you try using (a^3 + b^3) identity? not sure whether that will work or not.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1on that x is that a cube? I can't read for some reason. I can click on the code.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I suggest you simplify the denominator... use the identity.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1may be divide numerator and denominator by x^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so since x<0 then x=x and since we have x^3 then we could replace x^3 with (x)^3=x^3 now recall that if u>0 then sin(u)/u>1 see if you can use that here divide both top and bottom by 1/x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for large x \[\Large \frac{ x^4\sin \frac{ 1 }{ x }+x^2 }{ 1+\left x \right^3}\approx \frac{ x^4\sin \frac{ 1 }{ x }+x^2 }{ \left x \right^3}\] \[\Large=\frac{ x^4\sin \frac{ 1 }{ x }+x^2 }{ x^2\left x \right}\] \[\Large=\frac{ x^2\sin \frac{ 1 }{ x }+1 }{ \left x \right}\] \[\Large\approx\frac{ x^2\sin \frac{ 1 }{ x } }{ \left x \right}=\frac{x}{x}x\sin\frac{1}{x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we have to write x=1/h and then h>0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as \(x\to \infty\) you then get \((1)\cdot 1=1\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Zarkon how did u use the approximation in the first step?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in my first step I got rid of the 1 since for large x the 1 really contributes almost nothing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and by large x I mean large negative (obviously)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would have done it like this: (but this is because i'm not commander data like zarkon (who knows all because he is a superior being to a human) \[\lim_{x \rightarrow  \infty}\frac{\frac{x^4 \sin(\frac{1}{x})}{\frac{1}{x}}+\frac{x^2}{\frac{1}{x}}}{\frac{1}{\frac{1}{x}}\frac{x^3}{\frac{1}{x}}}\] then use the fact that if u>0 then sin(u)/u>1 it should be pretty easy after this point though.

myininaya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or i guess you could have just said \[\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{x^4 \sin(\frac{1}{x})+x^2}{1x^3}=\lim_{x \rightarrow \infty}\frac{x^3 \frac{\sin(\frac{1}{x})}{\frac{1}{x}}+x^2}{1x^3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3nope its all right now just use limit t tends to 0 (sint/t)=1

cody_123

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[1+\frac{ 1 }{ t^3 }=\frac{ t^31 }{ t^3 }\]
