# Limit of x/cosx when x approaches 0

The value of the limit of x/cosx is equal to 0 when x approaches to 0. Here we will learn how to find the limit of x/cosx when x tends 0. The formula of x/cosx limit as x goes to 0 is given below:

limx→0 $\dfrac{x}{\cos x}$ = 0.

## Proof of limit x/cosx is 0 when x→0

We can directly show the limit of x/cosx is equal to zero when x→0. We proceed as follows.

limx→0 $\dfrac{x}{\cos x}$

= $\dfrac{\lim\limits_{x \to 0} x}{\lim\limits_{x \to 0} \cos x}$ by the quotient rule of limits.

= $\dfrac{0}{\cos 0}$

= $\dfrac{0}{1}$ as the value of cos0 is 1.

= 0

So the limit of x/cosx is equal to 0 when x approaches to 0.

NOTE:

By the same technique, we can show that

• the limit of x/cos2x is equal to 0 as x tends to 0, that is, limx→0 $\dfrac{x}{\cos 2x}$ = 0.

• limx→0 $\dfrac{x}{\cos ax}$ = 0 for any number a.

• limx→0 $\dfrac{2x}{\cos x}$ = 0.
