To find (\lim_{x \to 0} \frac{\sin x}{x}) using L'Hospital's Rule, we can apply the rule which states that if the limit of the ratio of two functions is of the form (\frac{0}{0}) or (\frac{\infty}{\infty}), then the limit of the ratio is equal to the limit of the ratio of their derivatives, provided the latter limit exists.

Given (\lim_{x \to 0} \frac{\sin x}{x}), we have (\frac{0}{0}) as (x \to 0). So, we can differentiate the numerator and the denominator and find their limits as (x \to 0).

[ \lim_{x \to 0} \frac{\sin x}{x} = \lim_{x \to 0} \frac{\frac{d}{dx}(\sin x)}{\frac{d}{dx}(x)} ]

[ = \lim_{x \to 0} \frac{\cos x}{1} ]

[ = \cos 0 ]

[ = 1 ]

So, (\lim_{x \to 0} \frac{\sin x}{x} = 1)

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.
