(Version 1:) Calculate: lim x  x 4 + x 3 + 2 + sin x 1 + 2 x 8 + 2 x 4 + 3 (Version 2:) Calculate: lim x  3 x 4 + x 3 + 2 1 + 2 x 8 + 2 x 4 + 3 + sin x Solution: Both versions are solved by the same method: divide both the numerator and denominator by x 4 . Heres how version 1 ends up: lim x  1 + 1 x + 2 x 4 + sin x x 4 1 x 4 1 + 2 x 8 + 2 + 3 x 4 . Now, most of these terms go to 0 as x  since theyre just constants over some power of x . Nothing changes about the 1 in the numerator and the 2 in the denominator. The only terms we need to deal with are the sin x x 4 term and the term involving the square root. Now, 1 sin x 1, so also 1 x 4 sin x x 4 1 x 4 . As x  , both 1 x 4 and 1 x 4 go to 0. The Squeeze theorem tells us that also sin x x 4 goes to 0. We just need to deal now with the square root term. We have that 1 x 4 = 1 x 4 = q 1 x 8 . Hence 1 x 4 1 + 2 x 8 =...
