Question that concerns taking the limit of a multivariable function
The problem I am having trouble with looks like:
$\lim(x,y)\rightarrow(0,0)\ \sin(x)/\sin(y)$
(I apologize if this looks confusing. I'm new to using Latex but I think this is understandable. It is the limit as x & y approach the point (0,0) of the function sin(x) divided by sin(y)).

Am I able to perform L'hopital's rule on this function even though the function in the denominator and numerator do not share the same variables?

Thank you for any help!
