We can guess here that $$\lim_{x\to0}\frac{1-\cos x}{x\sin x}=0.5$$

Work Step by Step

$$\lim_{x\to0}\frac{1-\cos x}{x\sin x}$$ (a) The graph is shown below. (b) Looking at the graph, as $x\to0$, we see that $\frac{1-\cos x}{x\sin x}$ approaches as close as $0.5$. Therefore, we can guess here that $$\lim_{x\to0}\frac{1-\cos x}{x\sin x}=0.5$$
