Can you help me to demonstrate these limits? [It's URGENT!!!!]

Hello! Thank you for bothering to help me with this.... I need you to please help me with these points of my calculus activity.

The subject is called Trigonometric Limits.

The first one [A] has to be demonstrated using the sandwich theorem.
And the second [F] has to be demonstrated as you would normally do.

Please show me step by step how you would do it....

Thank you very much for the first exercise.... It really helped. But you could give me a hand with the second one, because I think they look a little different from each other. I'd really appreciate your help, buddy....

could you finish it so I can confirm that I did it right?

dude,

Take the last line of Skeeter's post at 10:09

you know what $\lim \limits_{y \to 0} \dfrac{\sin(y)}{y}$ is

you copied it from that website to show it's $1$

now you have a factor of $k \dfrac {1}{\cos(y)}$ left

just plug in the 0 and read it off, the denominator doesn't blow up.

Then perhaps you ought to sit down and work them out on paper. Nobody learns material well just by mental calculation.

Why bother? its way easier to put in zero effort and just ask for answers here.
