Using the definitions of sinhx and coshx, prove that

sinh(A-B) = sinhAcoshB - coshAsinhB

my working:

consider LHS: sinh(A-B) = (e^(A-B) - e^(B-A))/2

= (1/2)[(e^A)(e^-B) - (e^B)(e^-A)]

don't really know where to go from here, any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance

See what you make of it if you try with the RHS first.

Yes, as a general rule, it's easier to start from the "more complicated side" (since things will probably cancel to get you towards the simpler side).

This.

If you do the LHS then it's hard to see the cancelling down that would happen if you did the RHS first.
