Here my attempt:

sin (180 - x) = sin 180 . cos x - cos 180 . sin x

Next? I have no idea...

I suggest that you draw the XY axis, draw show zero degrees, X degrees, and 180-X degrees. Or do you mean that you need to show it algebraically?

Yes, I need it algebraically.I suggest that you draw the XY axis, draw show zero degrees, X degrees, and 180-X degrees. Or do you mean that you need to show it algebraically?

What are ##\sin 180°## and ##\cos 180°##?Yes, I need it algebraically.

You should know the values of cosine for common angles. Specifically for the angles of 0, 30, 45,60,90,120,135, 150 and 180 degrees at least and their equivalents in radian measure otherwise you will never solve these kinds of problems.

Did you learn about the unit circle?

Knowing that will answer your question.

I only know the value of sin x and cos x in the range from 0 degree to 90 degree.What are ##\sin 180°## and ##\cos 180°##?

I don't know the value of sin x and cos x greater than 90 degree.

Then find out. Look at my unit circle reference. In truth you should know them for 360 degrees and beyond as that in itself is also important to understand the periodicity of the functions.I only know the value of sin x and cos x in the range from 0 degree to 90 degree.

I don't know the value of sin x and cos x greater than 90 degree.

Or calculate ##\sin (90°+90°)## by the formulas you already used.
