We have to find the value of lim x--> inf+ [sin x / sqrt (x^2 + 1)]
sin x is a periodic function the value of which oscillates between -1 and 1 as x tends to infinity. It is not possible to determine the value of sin x for x--> inf., but we know the value is between -1 and +1.
The value of sqrt (1 + x^2) tends to infinity as x tends to inf. So the value of 1/ sqrt ( x^2 + 1) tends to zero.
This allows us to say that the value of lim x--> inf+ [sin x / sqrt (x^2 + 1)] = 0
The required value of lim x--> inf+ [sin x / sqrt (x^2 + 1)] is 0.

We cannot calculate the limit of sine function if x-> +infinite.
We'll calculate the function based on the property of product of 2 functions, if the limit of one function is 0 and the other function is bordered.
By definition, the sine function is limited by the values -1 and 1.
|sin x|=<1
Now, we'll calculate the limit of the fraction 1/sqrt(x^2+1):
lim 1/sqrt(x^2+1) = 1/infinite = 0
We'll write the given function as the product of 2 functions:
lim [1/sqrt(x^2+1)]*(sin x) = 0, if x->infinite
