    Start by considering 2A as A+A ... does that make you think of any particular theorem?

    ...of course that makes me want to know how to prove the theorem you are thinking of @Tonks

    sin(a+a)=sinacosb+cosasinb put the value of a and be here.

    We know that sin(2A) = sin(A + A) sin (A + A) = cosA sinA + cosA sinA = 2 sinA cosA QED

    @TuringTest try stacking triangles in the unit circle... or is that for cosine?

    Is that enough or do you need proof for sin (A + B) = cosA sinB + cosB sinA

    perhaps you are neglecting the fact that multiplication is commutative muhammad?
