Why is the y-intercept of $\frac {\sin(x)}{x}$ 1?

I recently came across this function: $$f(x) = \frac {\sin(x)}{x}$$, and I graphed it on desmos. Why is the $$y$$-intercept $$= 1$$ despite $$\sin(0)$$ being divided by zero?

$$f$$ is not defined at $$x=0$$ but it does have a limit when $$x \to 0$$. This limit is the one defining the derivative of sin at $$x=0$$, a milestone in calculus: $$\lim_{x\to0} \frac {\sin(x)}{x} = 1$$
