The value of

is ....a. 0

b.

c.

d. 2

e. 4

The approximation of x is supposed to be -2, actually, but for unknown reasons the negative sign can't show up in LaTeX.

What I did:

From then on is what got me hesitated. Does equal 1? Because as far as I recall, this kind of things can only work if x approaches 0, can't it? However, if I keep treating as 1, I got this:

Please tell me how to solve it properly.

Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away. May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.

That’s because you put a backslash before the - sign.

`\lim_{x\to\-2}`

Don’t put any backslash: it’s just

`\lim_{x\to-2}`

On the other hand, *do* put a backslash before the cos – otherwise *cos* in italics looks like a product of three variables. When formatted properly, the expression should look like this:

So, the approximation of x doesn't have to be 0 to make it equals 1?
