Determine whether the following limit exists. If so, find its value. lim [sin(x^2+y^2+z^2)] / (x^2+y^2+z^2)^1/2 x,y,z-->(0,0,0) can anyone guide me solving this question..

It's basically the same story here, just in multiple dimensions.

(cos t) / (t^-1/2) = t^1/2 cos t = 0^1/2 cos 0 = 0 ok.. how am i going to proceed to prove the limit is exist or not?

Your transformation to a single variable is ok in this case because of the symmetry of the functions f and g, but bear in mind that what you have to show in general is that the limit of the ratio of partials exists and is the same for each of the partial derivatives d/dx d/dy d/dz. This way, the limit will be the same no matter what path you choose to approach the origin.

### determine whether the limit exists. if so, find its value. lim┬((x,y)→(0,0))⁡〖(x^4-y^4)/(x^2 y^2 )〗
