derive this identity from the sum and difference formulas for cosine: sin a sin b= (1/2){cos(a-b)-cos(a+n)}

@Loser66 i can show you my work if that helps?

alright it might take a second there's a table and in the left hand side there's calculations, and on the right side is the reasoning
anonymous

cos(a-b)-cos(a+b) over 2 reason: To manipulate the right side
Loser66
  • Loser66
yup

ok then -2 sin (-a+b)+a+b over 2) ^2 (a+a+b-b over 2)
Loser66
  • Loser66
nope

-cos s+ cost= dsin (stt over 2) sin (s-t over 2)

= sin a sin b ^2 reason : simplified
Loser66
  • Loser66
\(cos (a-b) = cos a cos b + sina sinb\\cos(a+b) = cosa cos b- sinasinb\\----------------------\\\dfrac{cos(a-b) - cos(a+b)}{2} =\dfrac{ cosacosb+sinasinb-cosacosb +sinasinb}{2}\\=\dfrac{\cancel {2} sinasinb}{\cancel 2}= sinasinb ~~=\text{left hand side}\)

So thats for the second part that i had gotten wrong right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the first part was correct so i should keep that right? what about the reasonings?
anonymous

I really appreciate your help by the way :)

\[cos (a-b) = cos a cos b + sina sinb ~~~~~(\text{identity})\\cos(a+b) = cosa cos b- sinasinb~~~(\text{identity})\\----------------------\\\dfrac{cos(a-b) - cos(a+b)}{2} \\=\dfrac{ cosacosb+sinasinb-cosacosb +sinasinb}{2}~~(\text{open parentheses}) \\=\dfrac{\cancel {2} sinasinb}{\cancel 2}= sinasinb ~~=\text{left hand side}\]
