    Question Guess the Limit of....

    Hi I need help with a limit question.

    Guess the limit of

    f(x) = sin(x)/x + cos(x)/x

    as x --> 1

    Pick and evaluate 10 points to find the limit.


    Any help as to how I would approach this would be great!!!

    Thanks!

    I guess sin(1) + cos(1) = ..... (correct to .... decimal places)

    Substitute into f(x) values of x closer and closer to 1 (radian not degree) and compare the results with the guess.
