The Attempt at a Solution


I tried using trigonometric identites to figure it out but I can't do it, and when I looked up help for it I only found solutions that utilize the l'hopitals rule. I have to know how to do these questions without this rule, can someone at least get me started in the right direction please? Thanks.
