We have to determine the value of lim x--> 0[(cos x - cos 3x) / x*sin x

If we substitute x = 0, we get

(1- 1) / 0 = 0/0

As this is an indeterminate form we use l'Hopital's rule and replace the numerator and denominator by their derivatives.

=> lim x--> 0[ -sin x + 3 sin 3x] / (sin x + x*cos x)

substitute x = 0

=> (0 + 0) / (0 + 0)

Again substitute the derivatives

=> lim x--> 0[ -cos x + 9 cos 3x] / ( cos x + cos x - x*sin x)

substitute x = 0

=> (-1 + 9) / (1 + 1)

=> 8/2

=> 4

**The required value of lim x--> 0[(cos x - cos 3x) / x*sin x is 4**
