Homework Help: Limits Question

  1. Oct 26, 2005 #1
    Hello

    can someone help me with this question??

    Use continuity to evaluate the limit:

    lim x->PI Sin(x + Sin x)

    Please!

    thanks

    a) Is that function continuous?
    b) What is definition of continuity?
    Combine the two and the answer is trivial.

    I belive that this function is continus within its domain because it is a algebaric and trig function.

    But where do I go from here. If I plug Pi in to the function I get 0.00

    What is [itex]\sin \pi[/itex]? I think you'll find your calc is in degrees not radians.

    Let f(x)=x+sin(x), and let g(x)=sin(x). What is g(f(x))?
