    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Hi guys, How can sin(∏)cos(ω∏)-cos(∏)sin(ω∏) = sin(ω∏)? please guide me trigonometry identity to apply with this?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    sin(pi)=0, cos(pi)=(-1). So, of course, sin(∏)cos(ω∏)-cos(∏)sin(ω∏) = sin(ω∏). I'm not sure what that has to do with what follows.
