Ah, so I should've rewritten the cos 2x expression, before applying the limit.

Thanks! Really helpful! - Jul 10th 2012, 08:23 AMLepzedRe: Limit of trigonometric equation
I worked through another exercise and I'm wondering if my approach is correct. It might be a bit verbose, but I'd like to be clear on my train of thought:

Am I doing anything illegal here? I can't really identify with the meaning of this, so it's a mechanical process for me, I can't visualize this at all. - Jul 10th 2012, 08:46 AMPlatoRe: Limit of trigonometric equation
