I'm asked to evaluate the limit as x approaches pi/2 from the left of sec(7x)cos(3x). Would l'hospitals rule apply here or am I going about this wrong?
Well the reason I ask is that we just covered l'hospitals rule and this was on the homework we received, so I think perhaps we're supposed to use it if it applies
And how did you do that last step, simplifying to just 3/7 when the two terms following 3 and 7 in the num. and denom. are different?
The value of , assuming a is always a nonzero integer, will always equal 1, since sine is a periodic function. Go on, try it. So, he or she basically just canceled out 1 and 1 from the fraction.

Not quite... Depending on the remainder in the division of by 4, can take the values 0, 1 or -1. Go on, try it .
In the present case, the explanation is that and for any (i.e. sine is periodic, with period ). (By the way, ).
