Show that sin S - sin T = 2.cos (S + T / 2) .sin (S - T / 2)

(By the way, am I right in saying that you are not allowed to expand the RHS when the question asks to 'show'?)

Thanks !

Hi

You are allowed to expand the RHS using the usual trig identities cos(a+b) and sin(a-b) - March 7th 2009, 11:56 AMnoobonastick
I still don't know how to do it. (Crying)

On the right side

Multiply both to get the RHS
