To differentiate ( f(x) = 2 \sin(x) \cos(x) ), you can use the product rule of differentiation. The product rule states that if you have two functions, ( u(x) ) and ( v(x) ), then the derivative of their product is given by ( \frac{d}{dx}[u(x) \cdot v(x)] = u'(x) \cdot v(x) + u(x) \cdot v'(x) ). Applying this rule to ( f(x) = 2 \sin(x) \cos(x) ), where ( u(x) = 2 \sin(x) ) and ( v(x) = \cos(x) ), we have:

[ f'(x) = (2 \sin(x))' \cdot \cos(x) + 2 \sin(x) \cdot (\cos(x))' ]

[ f'(x) = (2 \cos(x)) \cdot \cos(x) + 2 \sin(x) \cdot (-\sin(x)) ]

[ f'(x) = 2 \cos^2(x) - 2 \sin^2(x) ]

[ f'(x) = 2(\cos^2(x) - \sin^2(x)) ]

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
