## Homework Statement

hello, what can I do to solve this without using d'hospital method?

[tex]\lim_{x\to0}\frac{\tan x-x}{x^3}[/tex]

Recall the formula [which is just the M.S. for tan(x)]:

[tex]tan(x)=x+\frac{1}{3}x^3+\frac{2}{15}x^5+\frac{17}{315}x^7+...[/tex]

Substitute this in the limit and the two "x" will be cancelled.

Then devide the denominator and the numerator by x^3.

and the limit will be done by the direct substitution.

The limit = 1/3
