we will work with the left side because it is easier.

use identity sum and difference

sin(x+y)sin(x+y)=cos^2y-cos^2x

Then, foil those and your middle two terms should cancel out leaving you with

sin^2xcos^2y-cos^2xsin^2y=

now using the pythagereom theorem change all the sin^2's to cos^2 giving you

cos^2y-cos^2xcos^2y-[cos^2xcos^2xcos^2y]=

cos^2y-cos^2xcos^2y-cos^2x+cos^2xcos^2y=

cos^2y-cos^2x
