Use the squeeze theorem to determine
LIM [ 3 -sin(e^x)]/ 3 minus Sin(exp x) divided by
x--> infinity [V (X^2 + 2)] square root of ( x squared + 2)
I would also appreciate a stage by stage go...
Use the fact that |sin(e[sup]x[/sup])| ≤ 1 and play with the inequality until you can bound your function.
@ zetfunc , you mean like, since I know that no matter what, -1<sinx < 1 , so I should subsititute sin(e^x) with 1 and -1, in the expression to get my lower and upper bound?

The sine function, regardless of the argument (and as long as it is real), is always at least bounded between -1 and 1.
Do you see what we are trying to do?
yes, but then how do you fit in the rest of the equation, or is it 2/( x^2 +2) </= f(x) </= 4/ (x^2 +2) ?
Yes, that is correct. The limit of the left and right bound are easy to get, so you should be able to get the original limit now.

The knowledge of some things as a function of age is a delta function.
Yes (with the square root signs).
Now you just need to show that the limits of both bounds go to zero as x approaches infinity.
