Hey guys im new here, but I have a test today and I need to understand trig limits better.

lim of x approaching 0

sin(4x)

sin(6x)

the hint that was given was "use the identity Lim x approaching 0

sinx= 1"

oh and another question, which is on the def. of a derivitive, i just cannot remember the equation of a tangent line/equation of the normal line.

Multiply by , so that you would get:

What's left is simple manipulation to get your limit into something like sin(u)/u - Oct 8th 2008, 06:38 AMChop Suey
The derivative is the slope of the tangent line. The equation of a line in point slope form is given by:

Where is the point in question and m is the slope. The equation of the normal line to this line contains , but its slope is the negative reciprocal of the original line.

For instance, if line K has a slope of 4, then the line that is perpendicular/normal to line k will have a slope of . Just remember that:

oh ok I thought i was right on the tangent equation, but thanks for the normal info and hopefully the trig limit info will help me out. thanks.
