$\displaystyle \lim_{x\to 0} (\cos x+(x^21)^{1/3})/(x\sin(x^2)x(e^x1))$ I used asymptotic analysis and the limit converges to 1/2, but wolframalpha gives complex solution. Thank you. Last edited by skipjack; August 28th, 2017 at 11:42 AM.

MacLaurin series.

The limit is 1/6, which is what WA gives if you click to tell it to use the realvalued cube root. Are you allowed to use de l'HÃ´pital's rule to obtain the limit? If not, find the Maclaurin series for the numerator and the denominator.
