The evaluation of limits without the usage of L'Hôpital's rule.

The idea here is to evaluate the limit using standard limit theorems (algebra of limits, Sandwich/Squeeze Theorem, essentially without using any differentiation) and some standard limit formulas related to algebraic, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic functions. Very often, Taylor series techniques prove fruitful in such problems as they allow for easy cancellation of powers and most terms evaluate to zero, leaving a simple expression for the limit.
