(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

initial value problem:

x(0)=-6

dx/dt=e^((x^2)/2)sin(5x)

find the limit of x(t) as t approaches infinity.

--I'm really unsure as to how to approach this... I was thinking along the lines of seeing where the derivative equalled zero (since if the rate of change is zero it would be indicative of a limit..) but then because of sin(5x) there are so many possibilities to this and I wasn't sure how to incorporate the initial value.

Any help would be really appreciated!!! Thanks :)
