    Use this here \[\sin (A-B)=\sin A\times \cos B-\sin B\times \cos A\]

    I tried this but the book is asking me to subtitute pi/2 for a

    and I know I have to solve for sin B and cos A

    \[\sin (B)=\cos (\frac {\pi}{2} -B)\] \[\cos A=\sin (\frac{\pi}{2}-{A})\] you can use \[\sin^2 x+\cos^2 x=1\] to figure out sin B and cos A
