This was an exam question I had at the end of 2005 in my uni entrance exams.
Can you do it?

Establish the inequality

[tex] xcosx < sinx < x [/tex] where [tex]0<x<pi/2[/tex] using the unit circle.

is the tex working?

This is a classic. Here:

The first part of the proof is what you are looking for.

Edit: Is it a challenge? If so then most people here will be able to do it, this is a very known proof.
