Hi Iqbal.
Remember that when you are given an equation to prove, unless you're told
otherwise you can start with either side of the equation to prove the other.
So pick whichever side you think is easier.
Iíll show you one
way of solving your question by starting with the right hand side:
Expression  Reason 

Given R.H.S. 

Multiply by the conjugate of the denominator. 

Simplify. 

Use the identity and separate 

Use the identity  


Multiply the middle term through the numerator. 

As required. 
Do you think it would be harder or easier starting from the left hand side? Try it!
I hope this helps you with other proofs based on trig identities, Iqbal!
