Find the limit.

  1. Feb 6, 2008 #1
    lim y->0 (sin 3y * cot 5y)/(y * cot 4y)

    Tricky problem to me. I understand what to do if the problem was something like sin 5x / 4x.

    Well first rewrite cot in terms of sin and cosine, and look to come up with something sinx/x when x-->0 to some parts of it at least.

    [tex]\lim_{y\rightarrow 0}\frac{\sin{3y}\cot{5y}}{y\cot{4y}}[/tex]

    Correct. Sorry I'm not good at latex.

    [tex]\lim_{y\rightarrow 0}\frac{\sin{3y}}{y}\cdot\frac{\sin{4y}}{\cos{4y}}\cdot\frac{\cos{5y}}{\sin{5y}}[/tex]

    How can you manipulate your limit? The left term is very easy.

    It would be easier if it were sin(3y)/y rather than sin(3x)/y !!!

    It was a typo!!!
