Evaluate the following limits:

Question:

Evaluate the following limits:

$\lim _{x \rightarrow \frac{\pi}{6}} \frac{\cot ^{2} x-3}{\operatorname{cosec} x-2}$

 

Solution:

$=\lim _{x \rightarrow \frac{\pi}{6}} \frac{\cot x \times \cot x-3}{\csc x-2}$

$=\lim _{x \rightarrow \frac{\pi}{6}} \frac{(\cos x \times \cos x)-3 \times \sin x \times \sin x}{\sin x(1-2 \sin x)}$

$=\lim _{x \rightarrow \frac{\pi}{6}} \frac{1-4 \times \sin x \times \sin x}{\sin x(1-2 \sin x)}$

$=\lim _{x \rightarrow \frac{\pi}{6}} \frac{(1-2 \sin x) \times(1+2 \sin x)}{\sin x(1-2 \sin x)}$

$=4$

$\therefore \lim _{x \rightarrow \frac{\pi}{6}} \frac{\cot x \times \cot x-3}{\csc x-2}=4$
