I did it for instead of .

In that case,

But we do not need to use that rule.

Instead for sufficiently large consider the reciprocal, i.e.

We can think of this reciprocal function as a composition where and . But at we define to be zero. Why? Because . This makes*continous*at zero.

Now and is continous at 0. By the limit composition rule the limit .

We have shown that . Which implies that its reciprocal is that is, .
