Subject: beginning calculus problem

This problem is a calculus 1 limit problem-high school level. I'm teaching myself calc over the summer and I'm already stumped.

find the limit

lim sec^(2)[(sqrt2)(p)]-1 p-->0 --------------------- 1-sec^(2)[(sqrt3)(p)]I'm Ann.

Hi Ann,

As with many limits involving trigonometry you need to use the fact that

For your problem

Now as p approaches 0 the first two terms approach 1 and the limit can be evaluated.
