Use a table of values to estimate the value of the limit.

lim (tan 3x/tan 5x)
x--> 0

• Calc -

Make a table where the first column is x, the second column is tan(3x), the third is tan(5x), and the last is tan(3x)/tan(5x).

Set your calculator to radians, and calculate the values of tan(3x) and tan(5x) for x=0.1, 0.01, 0.001...

From the values suggested by the last column, conclude the value of the limit.

So I am suppose to evaulate this problem y=tan^4(2x) and I am confused. my friend did this : 3 tan ^4 (2x) d sec^ 2x (2x)= 6 tan ^4 (2x) d sec^2 (2x) She says it's right but what confuses me is she deriving the 4 and made it a three?
