    it is a well known limit \[\lim_{x\to 0}\frac{\sin(x)}{x}=1\]

    but the proof is not obvious look in any intro calculus book, it will be there using a geometric argument and the "squeeze theorem"

    1) lim x-> 2 (x-5/x^2 + 4) 2) lim x-> 3 (x^2 - x - 6/x - 3) 3) lim h-> 0 ((2 + h)^2 - 4/h)

    2) factor as \[\frac{(x-3)(x+2)}{x-3}=x+2\] then replace \(x\) by 3

    3) expand get \[\frac{(2+h)^2-4}{h}=\frac{4+4h+h^2-4}{h}=\frac{4h+h^2}{h}=4+h\] then replace \(h\) by 0

    \[\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{t}=\frac{t+2}{2t}\] divide by \(t+2\) and get \[\frac{1}{2t}\] replace \(t\) by \(-2\)

    \[\lim_{x\to 4^+}\sqrt{16-x^2}\] does not exist because if \(x>4\) then \(16-x^2<0\) and you cannot take the square root of a negative number
