To use the Squeeze Theorem to find lim xcos(1/x) as x approaches zero, we can establish two functions that "squeeze" the given function.

First, we consider the function f(x) = -1, which is always less than or equal to xcos(1/x) for all x.

Next, we consider the function g(x) = 1, which is always greater than or equal to xcos(1/x) for all x.

Since f(x) ≤ xcos(1/x) ≤ g(x) for all x, and both f(x) and g(x) approach zero as x approaches zero, we can conclude that lim xcos(1/x) as x approaches zero is also zero.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
