    Tough limit

    I'm having trouble finding a limit and would appreciate if someone could point me in the right direction.

    I'm looking for the

    lim arcsin(1-sqrtx)/(1-x)
    x->1

    The equation looks like this

    - Wolfram|Alpha

    In its current form is undefined. What can I do?

    I'd use L'Hopital's rule.
