## Homework Statement

How did [itex]\frac{1}{2}x[/itex] come from at k=1?

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

because k=1 will make the first term at denominator 2(k-1) = [itex]\frac{0}{0}[/itex]

Yes. The [itex]\ \frac{1}{2}x\ [/itex] comes from the fact that the first term has the form 0/0 as k → 1.## Homework Statement

Use L' Hopital's Rule --> [itex]\displaystyle \ \lim_{t\to0}cos(t) = 1 [/itex]Yes. The [itex]\ \frac{1}{2}x\ [/itex] comes from the fact that the first term has the form 0/0 as k → 1.

What is [itex]\displaystyle \ \lim_{t\to0}\frac{\sin(t)}{t}\ ?[/itex]

thank you SammyS
