Here are some advices:

→Take A + B + C = π and solve for one of the variables. Then, substitute C, B or A for asin(B-C)+bsin(C-A)+csin(A-B)=0.

→Since you get the shift by π in sine expressions, you need to use these formulas:

sin(x - π) = -sin(x) and sin(-x + π) = sin(x) [Make sure that when get the expression like sin(A + B - π), we have -sin(A + B)]

Good luck, and let me know if you have comments or problems. :D
