How do I get cos2t-cos4t from sintsin3t?
It's part of an integration question and the mark scheme doesnt show the steps for this part.

Use the product to sum formula

then integrate

Okay, thank you. But where is this formula from? Is it supposed to be given to us in the a level maths exam cause I never learnt this.

Cant say for definite what you have/should have covered. But it is a 1 line derivation from the usual angle sum / difference identities so
cos(2t) = cos(3t-t) = cos(3t)cos(t) + sin(3t)sin(t)
cos(4t) = cos(3t+t) = cos(3t)cos(t) - sin(3t)sin(t)
then subtract.

Learn double angle identities
