    Trigonometric Identities

    What is equivalent to the value of sin(A+B) if sinA = cosB?

    I know the answer is 1. I just can't see how to get their using the trig identities.

    If sinA=cosB, then cosA=sinB also. Why?

    Expanding sin(A+B) then leads to

    cos^2B+sin^2B

    or

    sin^2A+cos^2A
