## Homework Statement

[tex]\mathop {\lim }\limits_{x \to 0} (1 - \cos x)[/tex]

**2. The attempt at a solution**

well as x goes to 0, cos x goes to 1... ln(1-1) is undefined

now if I forget about plugging in x=0 and think a little bit, the ln argument gets very very small, and the logarithm of a decimal number is a negative number... so I would say the limit is minus infinity.

however, is it possible to get that result analytically.... by transforming/simplyfing/etc. the function?

sorry, I have just finished precalculus and I am beginning calculus, so my calculus skills are crap =\

thank you
