## Homework Statement

[PLAIN]http://www4d.wolframalpha.com/Calculate/MSP/MSP120619i0ea2h15bci31300005d9a3422292h43h4?MSPStoreType=image/gif&s=43&w=174&h=39 [Broken]

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

So Wolfram says to use L'Hopital as the first step, we haven't learned anything about this yet so there has to be another way using calculus that a first year math student would know.

I would first expand the denominator of x^2-4 to (x+2)(x-2) and cancel out the x+2 in both numerator and denominator. And I'm left with:

((x-1)sin1)/(x-2)

This is where I get lost...

Any help would be much appreciated!

Jim
