I'm actually having a hard time understanding Limits with Trigonometry. So I'll need to ask questions about that. For this given problem: asdf.jpg How did Sin(TT/4) and Cos(TT/4) became √2/2? Someone please explain to me how Limits with Trigonometry works TTTT Last edited by skipjack; November 15th, 2016 at 06:54 AM.

$\sin(\pi/4) = \cos(\pi/2  \pi/4)= \cos(\pi/4)$ $\sin^2(\pi/4) + \cos^2(\pi/4) = 1 \implies 2\sin^2(\pi/4) = 1$, etc.
