Ok and 1-1 in the numerator gives 0 doesn't it?

NO. You get cos(u)-1. That's not zero.

Why are you asking that?

Why are you asking that?

because you said that 2*cos(u)*sin(pi/6) is the cos(u) part.

Ok i got the limit as 1/(2√3) is that correct?

Are you saying that you don't see why it is equal to cos(u)???

Yes, it is. That's the same thing l'Hopital would give you. You can always use l'Hopital to check these even if you can't use it to solve the problem.
