  1. If it makes it any easier for you to see the angles in degrees, convert them

    pi/3 radians = 60º and 3pi/4 = 135

    so sin(pi/3-3pi/4) = sin(60-135) = sin
    (-75)

    now sin(-75) = -sin(75)
    -sin(75) = -sin(45+30)

    use the formula we used in the previous posted like questions.
    I will check your answer.
