Homework Help: Calculus..more help!

Posted by Alex on Saturday, February 21, 2009 at 6:39pm.

I have a question relating to limits that I solved
lim(x-->0) (1-cosx)/2x^2
I multiplied the numerator and denominator by (1+cosx) to get
lim(x->0) (1-cos^2x)/2x^2(1+cosx)
= lim(x->0)sin^2x/2x^2(1+cosx)
the lim(x->0) (sinx/x)^2 would =1
I then substituted the remaining portion with 0 and got 1/4
Is this answer right??
