1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data I'm asked to find the limit of [arctan(x)-(x)] / [arcsin(x)-(x)] as x--->0 3. The attempt at a solution So I started plugging in values of x closer and closer to zero. I get: f(-0.05)= -1.994758 f(-0.01)= -1.999790 f(-0.001)= -2.000012 f(0.05)= -1.994758 f(0.01)= -1.999790 f(0.001)= -2.000024 At first (before I calculated (-0.001 and 0.001) I thought the limit was neg two, but after I calculated -.001 and .001 and got -2.000012 and -2.000024 I'm thrown off. Does the limit not exist, or is my calculator rounding wierdly. Any help is much appreciated.
