    You're going to have to be a little more specific, what are u and v? Are you looking to simplify this expression? As well, when you preview a post it adds the template to your post again, so remember to delete it.

    Hello! Use cos(A+B)=cosAcosB-sinAsinB

    Then, use:
    cos[arcsin(x)]=√1-x2
    sin[arccos(x)]=√1-x2
