Hello. I need help on two questions related to limits of indeterminate forms. I've solved at least fifty other such questions, but these just elude me...

I'm sorry I wasn't more thorough, but I had to leave in a hurry in the middle, so I gave an abridged version. :o

I've run into another problem. This one, unlike the other two, which were purely for interest, is for my course study.

My problem here is that I can't figure out a way to handle , which oscillates between -1 & 1 when*x*approaches . And we are not allowed to use any series expansions, which may help solve the problem.

Please? - Oct 25th 2007, 11:46 AMPaulRS
To deal with that sort of limits you can use the
