I tried using the sandwich rule but my final answer doesn't make much sense:

The final bit doesn't make sense since I get that it convereges to a number between 0 and 0 that isn't 0. :s

Oh right. It just didn't look right when I got to the end.(Worried)

I think that's the first time i've ever used the sandwich rule. It's nice to know I was doing it correctly!(Giggle)
