# Thread: use squeeze theorem to

1. ## use squeeze theorem to

use squeeze theorem to establish limit

lim (as x goes to zero) of x sin(1/x)=0

also help with keying problem? symbosl etc?

2. ## Re: use squeeze theorem to

For all $\displaystyle x \in \Re$,
$\displaystyle -1 \leq sin(x) \leq 1$.

This is also valid for $\displaystyle 1/x \in \Re$ $\displaystyle x \neq 0$,
$\displaystyle -1 \leq sin(1/x) \leq 1$.

Multiply by $\displaystyle x$ and apply the squeeze theorem.

Examples of using Latex (the symbols) can be found here Use $$and$$ tags NOT $and$ tags for latex. and LaTex Tutorial

I think you mean, for all $\displaystyle x$, $\displaystyle -1\leq\sin x\leq1$.

Learn LaTeX coding.
[TEX]{\lim _{x \to 0}}x\sin \left( {\frac{1}{x}} \right)[/TEX] gives $\displaystyle {\lim _{x \to 0}}x\sin \left( {\frac{1}{x}} \right)$.

Sorry, yes that's the one.
