from the above,we make cos^2x the subject of the formula:

cos^2x = 1- sin^2x......................(1)

substituting the above into the left hand side of original equation:

sin^2x - ( 1 - sin^2x )

expanding the bracket and noting that - times - equals +

sin^2x - 1 + sin^2x

rearranging:

2sin^2x - 1.
