# Thread: Find the (trigonometric) limit

1. ## Find the (trigonometric) limit

How do I find the following limit?:

lim t --> 0 (tan 6t)/(sin 2t)

(The answer is 3 and I could also figure that out by plugging in t = 0.01 but I would like to know the legitimate way of doing this. My teacher taught us similar stuff but I don't think he went over this particular type of problem)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

$\lim_{t\rightarrow 0} \frac{\tan (6t)}{\sin (2t)}=\lim_{t\rightarrow 0} \frac{\tan (6t)}{6}\frac{2}{\sin(2t)}\frac{6}{2}=1*1*3=3$
