## Homework Statement

So I'm supposed to find the partial derivatives and calculate them at point (0,2) using the definition

## Homework Equations

[itex] f(x,y) = x^2y\sin(1/x) [/itex] IF x ≠ 0

[itex] f(x,y) = 0 [/itex] IF x = 0

## The Attempt at a Solution

[itex]\frac{lim_{\Delta_x\rightarrow0} = (x + \Delta_x)^2y\sin(1/x+\Delta_x) - x^2y\sin(1/x)}{\Delta_x}[/itex]

the thing is, I'm not very sure how to solve

[itex] \lim_{\Delta_x\rightarrow0} \sin(1/x+\Delta_x) [/itex]

and if I just consider it the same as sin(1/x)

things get messed up

also this is my first time using LaTex.

Hope I did fine.
