Is it just me who found this hard??

I was recently set this question by my maths tutor and it took me ages to do :/ I'm wondering if I was just in the wrong mind set or if it really is hard... also it's kinda fun :] All it is is to prove that sin(a-b)=cos(b)sin(a)-cos(a)sin(b). Reactions?? :]

Um...Its shouldn't be that hard.You probably just missed something or you have figured it out by now. I'm too lazy to to type all that.. but it should look like Vishwesh's proof below or here's one from themathpages,Khan Academy. or mayb have a look at something simple and visual. Have fun. :)

It can be proved easily if you allow me to use a little geometry + trigonometry for my help

Consider the unit circle with centre at the origin. Let x be the angle \(P_4OP_1\)and y be the angle \(P_1OP_2\). Then (x + y) is the angle \(P_4OP_2\). Also let (– y) be the angle \(P_4OP_3\). Therefore, \(P_1\), \(P_2\), \(P_3\) and \(P_4\) will have the coordinates \(P_1\)(cos x, sin x), \(P_2\) [cos (x + y), sin (x + y)], \(P_3\) [cos (– y), sin (– y)] and \(P_4\) (1, 0).

Sorry its hard for me to type all this. I am posting a link to the image of the solution I did.
