I am trying to factorize $\sin(x)\over x$ which by Taylor series expansion and using the roots is $$a \cdot \left(1 - \frac{x}{\pi} \right) \left(1 + \frac{x}{\pi} \right) \left(1 - \frac{x}{2\pi} \right) \left(1 + \frac{x}{2\pi} \right) \left(1 - \frac{x}{3\pi} \right) \left(1 + \frac{x}{3\pi} \right) \cdots$$

Now I was told that this nasty factor $a$ conveniently becomes $1$ due to Weierstrass’s Factorization Theorem which is a transcendental generalization of the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra.

**My question**

Could you please show me how $a$ is being neutralized using this theorem? Or don't you even need this theorem to do so?
