Which of the following completes the identity

**Possible Answers:**

### Example Question #2 : Product Of Sines And Cosines

Derive the product of sines from the identities for the sum and differences of trigonometric functions.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

First, we must know the formula for the product of sines so that we know what we are searching for. The formula for this identity is . Using the known identities of the sum/difference of cosines, we are able to derive the product of sines in this way. Sometimes it is helpful to be able to expand the product of trigonometric functions as sums. It can either simplify a problem or allow you to visualize the function in a different way.
