I have to prove that lim sin(1/x) when x->0 does not exist. i used Haines definition of the limit to prove this. I found two sequences x=1/n*pi, so when n-> infinity x->0, and the other sequence that also converges to zero that i used in this case is x=2/(4n+1)*pi, this also when n->infinity then x->0. now when we take take the corresponding sequences we get:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

lim sin n*pi, n-> infinity, and lim sin (4n+1)*pi/2, as n-> infinity,

the problem is here, i am not sure at this case if i can take lim sin n*pi, n-> infinity =0 and lim sin (4n+1)*pi/2, as n-> infinity= 1, i think i should do like this. But at this case what i am courious to know is why should i take these results??

any help would do.
