sinx ( cos^{2}x - 1) / 2 sinx cosx

solution: 1 - 1/2 cos^{2}x

I am not sure if what I did is right and I don't know what to do next. May you help me?? Thanks for the answers.(Clapping)

Parenthesis would be of some benefit here.

The numerator...You forgot a multiple of sin(x):

The denominator you also forgot a cos(x):
