    but in this kind of problem both sides have to equal to one another, so in this casem @TweT226 is right. but why did you subtract it by 1?

    15a. \[\sin ( x - \Theta) = sinx \cos \theta - \sin \theta cosx \] then solve and put theta = pi \[\cos \Pi = -1 \] \[\sin \Pi = 0\] Put that into the equation and obtain -sinx

    14d. i will solve this from the right hand side of the equation: \[\tan ^2 x \sin^2x = \frac{ \sin^2x }{ \cos^2x } \times \left( \sin^2x \right)\] \[= \frac{ \sin^2x }{ \cos^2x } \times ( 1 - \cos^2x)\]

    I worked on from the RHS.. its much easier to figure out from the RHS but I will try to do it from the LHS as well. it should be the same answer. In the meantime, you can check the solutions i put up
