To solve ( \cos(x) = \sin(x) ), you can use trigonometric identities to rewrite the equation in terms of one trigonometric function.

One approach is to use the Pythagorean identity: ( \sin^2(x) + \cos^2(x) = 1 ).

Rearranging this identity, we have: ( \sin^2(x) = 1 - \cos^2(x) ).

Substitute this expression for ( \sin^2(x) ) into the equation ( \cos(x) = \sin(x) ):

[ \cos(x) = \sqrt{1 - \cos^2(x)} ]

Now, solve for ( \cos(x) ):

[ \cos^2(x) = 1 - \cos^2(x) ]

[ 2\cos^2(x) = 1 ]

[ \cos^2(x) = \frac{1}{2} ]

Taking the square root of both sides:

[ \cos(x) = \pm \sqrt{\frac{1}{2}} ]

So, the solutions for ( x ) are ( x = \frac{\pi}{4} + 2n\pi ) and ( x = \frac{3\pi}{4} + 2n\pi ), where ( n ) is an integer.

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.
