Trigonometric Limits

I'm actually having a hard time understanding Limits with Trigonometry.

So I'll need to ask questions about that.

For this given problem:

How did Sin(TT/4) and Cos(TT/4) became √2/2?


Someone please explain to me how Limits with Trigonometry works TT-TT

$\sin(\pi/4) = \cos(\pi/2 - \pi/4)= \cos(\pi/4)$

$\sin^2(\pi/4) + \cos^2(\pi/4) = 1 \implies 2\sin^2(\pi/4) = 1$, etc.
