Sin4A - cos4A = sin2A - cos2A

Can i just square root the left side??:O

I don't think it is an identity.

let A=90 deg

sin(360)-cos(360)=0-1

sin(180)-cos(180)=0+1

The sides are not equal.

?? Im sorry i dont understand what u did but im sure tht this is an identity we have to prove tht the left side equals the right side:)
