Uniformly Continuous.
Prove or disapprove f(x) is uniformly continuous
f(x)=(sinx)/x for x not equal to zero.
and f(x)=1 for x=0

I know f(x) is uniformly continous but I can't prove it. how do i show the derivative $(xcosx-sinx)/x^{2}$ is bounded.

thanks

Show that the derivative is continous

Take into account that the coefficients of McLaurin expansion of $x\cdot \cos x - \sin x$ of degree < 3 are equal to zero, so that is $f^{'}(0)=0$ and that both the functions $\frac{\cos x}{x}$ and $\frac{\sin x}{x^{2}}$ tend to 0 if x tends to infinity...

Kind regards
