    I'll play around with the left side and try to get it to look like the right side.\[1 + \sin2A = \sin^2A+\cos^2A+2\sin A \cos A\]\[=\cos^2A+2\sin A \cos A +\sin^2A\] If we think of sinA as being a and cosA as being b, then the above expression is equivalent to a^2 + 2ab+ b^2, this is the same as the square of the sum a + b... so.... \[\cos^2A+2 \sin A \cos A+\sin^2A = (\cos A+\sin A)^2\]
