    Your problem is trivial, you can just evaluate as written.

    "Using continuity" just means that you recognize that the function is continuous at x=\pi and therefore the limit can be evaluated by simple substitution.

    <br />
\lim_{x \to \pi} \; \sin(x+\sin(x))<br />
~=~ \sin(\pi+\sin(\pi))<br />
~=~ \dots

    Does it make sense now?
