We can use that `lim_(x->0) f(x) = lim_(x->0) e^(ln(f(x))) = e^(lim_(x->0+)ln(f(x)))`
`lim_(x->0) (2/pi arccos(x))^(1/x) = lim_(x->0) e^(ln((2/pi arccos(x))^(1/x)))`
`lim_(x->0)ln(2/pi arccos(x))^(1/x)=lim_(x->0)ln(2/pi arccos(x))/x`
Now we use L'Hopital's rule because
`lim_(x->0) ln(2/pi arccos(x)) = 0` and `lim_(x->0) x = 0` so we have `0/0` and can use L'Hopital
`lim_(x->0)ln(2/pi arccos(x))/x=lim_(x->0)(1/(2/pi arccos(x))(2/pi (-1/sqrt(1-x^2))))/1`
This limit can be evaluated at x=0
`1/(2/pi arccos(0))(2/pi (-1/sqrt(1-0)))=-2/pi`
So our `lim_(x-gt0) (2/pi arccos(x))^(1/x)=e^(-2/pi)`
