uh have you typed the problem correctly? I don't see division anywhere

There is not division yet, you have to take ln first

You ln both sides as you said. so let y=(1-cosx)^2x. so lny=2xln(1-cosx) so now you are solving the limit of lny as x approaches 0. You have 0*infinity, so you change one into a quotient to get into a fraction. So 2ln(1-cosx)/(1/x). Now apply l'hopital multiple times and keep on simplifying until you no longer get an indeterminate form. You eventually find out the limit equals 0. So the limit for lny=0. Now recall, e^lny=y. So lim for y= e^(lim for lny) So solving the limit for lny gives us the exponent in the e. So the limit equals e^0=1.
