It needs the use of three trig identities.
Briefly, take a difference of two squares on the LHS, simplify the two brackets using (1) and (2) and then use (3) (twice) to simplify the resulting expression. Move the resulting expression to the RHS, remove as a common factor and then use (2) again on the expression within the brackets.
That leads to
