Why does the infinite cosine "cos(cos(cos(...(x))))" aproach 0.7390...?
I can't find any solutions on the internet, and simply discovered this by playing with my calculator. Why does this happen? What is this number in the limit? Also, with the sine, I think it aproaches 0, but it does very very slowly, (slower every time you add a sine), unlike the cosine.

12ft - Hop any paywall
Bypass any paywall, Prepend 12ft.io/ to the URL of any paywalled page, and we'll try our best to remove the paywall and get you access to the article. I believe Google Adwords killed the web. Google Adwords incentivized sites to peddle SEO optimized garbage.
