because ##\frac{x-\sin{x}}{(\sin{x})^3}\not=\frac{1}{\sin^{2}{x}}-\frac{1}{\sin^{2}{x}}##. I understand that you want to use the limit ##\lim_{x\rightarrow 0}\frac{\sin{x}}{x}=1##, but in this case you need a better approximation than ##\sin{x}\sim x## as ##x\rightarrow 0## ...

You know the de L'Hopital rule or Mc Laurin expansion?
