Strange Calculus example

You're asked to find lim x-->0 sin7x / 4x

The part of this example that I don't understand the most is how they get 1 out of sin7x/7x when x-->0.

Sorry about the ridiculously small image. The dimension restrictions are ridiculous, and I didn't notice that the image didn't attach properly the first time.

Are you familiar with $\lim_{x \rightarrow 0} (sin x) / x = 1$?

No, I was not. I guess that clears that up, thanks:p
