    Yep.. working on it. Did you try using (a^3 + b^3) identity? not sure whether that will work or not.

    on that |x| is that a cube? I can't read for some reason. I can click on the code.

    I suggest you simplify the denominator... use the identity.

    may be divide numerator and denominator by x^3

    so 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

    for large x \[\Large \frac{ x^4\sin \frac{ 1 }{ x }+x^2 }{ 1+\left| x \right|^3}\approx \frac{ x^4\sin \frac{ 1 }{ x }+x^2 }{ \left| x \right|^3}\] \[\Large=\frac{ x^4\sin \frac{ 1 }{ x }+x^2 }{ x^2\left| x \right|}\] \[\Large=\frac{ x^2\sin \frac{ 1 }{ x }+1 }{ \left| x \right|}\] \[\Large\approx\frac{ x^2\sin \frac{ 1 }{ x } }{ \left| x \right|}=\frac{x}{|x|}x\sin\frac{1}{x}\]

    we have to write x=-1/h and then h->0

    as \(x\to \infty\) you then get \((-1)\cdot 1=-1\)

    in my first step I got rid of the 1 since for large x the 1 really contributes almost nothing

    and by large x I mean large negative (obviously)

    I 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.

    or i guess you could have just said \[\lim_{x \rightarrow -\infty}\frac{x^4 \sin(\frac{1}{x})+x^2}{1-x^3}=\lim_{x \rightarrow -\infty}\frac{x^3 \frac{\sin(\frac{1}{x})}{\frac{1}{x}}+x^2}{1-x^3}\]
