Homework Help: Trigonometric Limits

  1. Oct 14, 2007 #1
    This isn't really a homework question--but just something I was thinking about while doing homework.

    Since lim(sinx/x) as x--->0 = 1

    does that mean that lim(x/sinx) as x--->0 = 1 ?

    yes, you can manipulate the x/sinx to sinx/x which will give you 1

    cool, how is that done?

    lim x/sinx = lim 1/(sinx/x) = 1/1 = 1
    as x->0
