    \lim_{x\to 0}\bigg\{\dfrac{\tan{x}}{{x}}\bigg\} = \lim_{x\to 0}\bigg\{\frac{\left(\frac{\sin{x}}{\cos{x}}\right  )}{x}\bigg\} = \lim_{x\to 0}\bigg\{\left(\dfrac{\sin{x}}{{x}}\right)\left(\d  frac{1}{\cos{x}}\right)\bigg\} = \lim_{x\to 0}\bigg(\dfrac{\sin{x}}{{x}}\bigg)\lim_{x\to 0}\bigg(\dfrac{1}{{\cos{x}}}\bigg) = 1.
