    Of course you can't. Find the limits manually.

    Or, you can use l'hopital's rule given that you have learned it.

    and, here's a hint: sin(a+b)=sin(a)cos(b)+sin(b)cos(a)

    Find the left and right hand limits. Are they the same?

    \[\lim_{x \rightarrow -1^-}=\lim_{x \rightarrow -1^+}\] is what I'm asking here.
