Is it correct that [itex]|\sin x|=-\sin x[/itex] as [itex]x\rightarrow 0-[/itex]?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It's clear for a function like [itex]y=x[/itex], but I ask the question since the sine oscillates from positive to negative values, so for different x's the abs. value is either pos. or neg. Or do I only need to consider values of x that are between -pi and 0?

I know the limit is zero, I just need to know how to write the intermediate step of getting rid of the abs. value sign.
