I need to prove curl(A x B) = AdivB - BdivA + (B·∇)A - (A·∇)B

But I keep on getting confused in the numbers. I tried taking the cross product A x B and crossing that into the gradient, but I just get lost. I also tried going from the right side of the equation and get lost in there as well.

Can someone show me a clear way of doing this proof or put me in the right direction?

Thank you
