Determine the limit of the trigonometric function:
Limit as x approaches pi/4 of (1tanx)/(sinxcosx)
I need step by step help using the special trignometric limits theorem.

(1tanx)/(sinxcosx) = 0/0, so try LHospital's Rule:
sec^2(x)/(cosx+sinx) = (2)/(2/√2) = 2/√2 = √2

I'm supposed to find the limit as x approaches infinity of (2xsinx)/(x+cosx). I've thought about using the squeeze theorem, but I'm not sure it applies here. Can someone point me in the right direction?
