sine(x)= 1/2i(e^ix -e^-ix) and cos(x)=1/2i(e^ix + e^-ix) I am supposed to verify these identities. I know that e^ix = cos x + i sin x. So do I plug that in and simplify or is there something that I am missing?

Yes, plug that in and use some trig identities. The most useful one will be that $\displaystyle \sin (-x) = -\sin x \text{ and } \cos(-x) = \cos x$.
