## Homework Statement

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

let y = lim x->0+ x^cos(1/x)

lny = cos(1/x)*lnx = (x*cos(1/x)) * (lnx/x)

x*cos(1/x) = 0 (sandwich theorem)

lnx/x = 0 (l'hopital)

so lny = 0

and y = 1

Is this correct?

let y = lim x->0+ x^cos(1/x)

lny = cos(1/x)*lnx = (x*cos(1/x)) * (lnx/x)

x*cos(1/x) = 0 (sandwich theorem)

lnx/x = 0 (l'hopital)

so lny = 0

and y = 1

Is this correct?

No, that doesn't look right at all.## Homework Statement

what happens when ##\cos(1/x)## is negative?

what happens when ##\cos(1/x)## is negative?

Well then y would tend to infinity but the limit is x-> 0+No, that doesn't look right at all.

what happens when ##\cos(1/x)## is negative?

He is not asking about what happens to x; he is asking about what happens to x^cos(1/x).Well then y would tend to infinity but the limit is x-> 0+

tends to infinity I guessHe is not asking about what happens to x; he is asking about what happens to x^cos(1/x).
