    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?

    I know it was some geometric proof like that, I don't remember those darn things...

    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?

    in English that's called the commutative property of addition.

    Yeah, sorry about that, though. It's easier for me to remember this formula this way.

    @micahwood50 can this destroy the problem of sin(45-30) solve with your formula.

    cos45*sin30-cos45sin30

    Well, with minus, it's different story.

    ok do sin(45+30)=cos45sin30+cos30sin45

    @muhammad9t5 I know the formulas, you don't have to correct me. Thanks, though.
