Hey can someone help me solve this? Thanks

Hint: Let $f(x)=\cos(11x)$. Note that $f(11\pi/2)=0$.

Thus we are looking for $$\lim_{x\to11\pi/2}\frac{f(x)-f(11\pi/2)}{x-11\pi/2}.$$ By definition, this is $f'(11\pi/2)$. Calculate the derivative using the ordinary rules of differentiation.

Setting $\displaystyle x-\dfrac{11\pi}2=u$
$$\lim_{x\to\dfrac{11\pi}2}\left(\frac{\cos11x}{x-\dfrac{11\pi}2}\right)$$
$$=\lim_{u\to0}\left(\frac{\cos\left[11\left(u+\dfrac{11\pi}2\right)\right]}u\right)$$
$$=\lim_{u\to0}\left(\frac{\cos\left(11u+\dfrac{\pi}2\right)}u\right)$$
$$=-11\lim_{u\to0}\left(\frac{\sin11u}{11u}\right)$$ as $\cos\left(\frac\pi2+y\right)=-\sin y$
