Find the limit of f(x) as x approaches infinity: f(x)=cos(1/x)/(1+(1/x)) if you can help please explain each step.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i think you get 1 by inspection

OpenStudy (anonymous):

meaning $\lim_{x\rightarrow \infty}\frac{1}{x}=0$ as since cosine is continuous this means $\lim_{x\rightarrow \infty}\cos(\frac{1}{x})=\cos(0)=1$

OpenStudy (anonymous):

likewise $\lim_{x\rightarrow \infty}(1+\frac{1}{x})=1+0=1$so the whole thing is $\frac{1}{1}=1$

OpenStudy (anonymous):

think all the steps are there. "by inspection" meant no tricks or l'hopital's rule

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so you found the limit of the numerator and the limit of the denominator and made that the answer? you can do that?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes

OpenStudy (anonymous):

you can do it unless you get $\frac{0}{0}$ then you have to do more work

OpenStudy (anonymous):

right. teacher emphasized sandwich theorem in lecture so i've attempted to find it that way with no luck. do you know how to do it that way?
