Homework Help: Urgent simple limit question.

  1. Dec 16, 2005 #1
    Hey,

    Just need to evaluate this limit, I know that the answer is 0, but I can't figure out how to prove it. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    lim(x-0) of (sin(cosx-1))/x

    Thanks.

    Use L'Hopital's rule.

    Oops, figured it out just after I posted... just multiply by (cosx-1)/(cosx-1)... sorry! :blushing: Somebody can delete the thread if they want...
