2/2/2014 11:11:55 AM Posted: 2 years ago If your good at calculus can you show all your steps in working out the problem below.
You can not use L'Hopitals rule because I'm not allowed to yet. What is the Limit of ( sin(x) / x  pi) as x goes to pi Show all your steps thanks.

2/2/2014 12:46:04 PM Posted: 2 years ago And if anyone could also help me find the derivative of
f(x) = x^3 + 3x / x^2 1 , so basically df/dx =? Use the quotient rule and show all your steps

2/2/2014 1:49:44 PM Posted: 2 years ago Yay, I get a different answer:
f(x) = ( x^3 + 3x ) / ( x^2 1 ) f(x)' = ? 1. quotient rule: (vu'uv')/v^2 2. [ ( x^2  1 ) ( 3x^2 + 3 )  ( x^3 + 3x ) ( 2x ) ] / ( x^2  1 ) ^2 3. ( x^4  6x^2  3 ) / [ ( x^2  ) ( x^2  1 ) ] 4. ( x^4  6x^2  3 ) / ( x^4  2x^2 + 1 ) Step 4 is the answer.

2/2/2014 1:54:37 PM Posted: 2 years ago Step 3 should read ( x^4  6x^2  3 ) / [ ( x^2  1 ) ( x^2  1 ) ]
I did it twice and I still get the same answer I got in Step 4.

2/2/2014 2:48:42 PM Posted: 2 years ago By the way, Disquisition, for you first problem you can't use L'Hospital's rule.
The problem isn't of the indeterminate form [ lim x>a f (x) ] / [ lim x>a g (x) ] = 0 / 0 or infinity / inifinity. L'Hospital's rules doesn't apply.

What is the derivative of f(x) = cos(2x), when c = (pi) / (4), The question basically wants us to plug it into this equation [f ( c+h )  f ( c )] / h so I think its saying to determine the derivative of cos(2x) when x = (pi) / (4)

The reason is that the lim sin(x) as x > pi is neither 0 or infinity. Both the limits of the expression in the numerator and the denominator need equal 0 xor infinity.
