HELP SOLVING THESE TRIG. IDENTITIES PLEASE I BEG OF YOU BBY?

Make sure to show steps! Explain if possible!

9.) cos(x+y)cosy+sin(x+y)siny=cosx

10.) sin x- tan y cos x= (sin(x-y)/cos y)

12.) (tan(π/4 + x) - tan (π/4-x))/(tan(π/4+x) +tan (π/4-x)) = 2sinxcosx

13.) sin (x+y)sin(x=y)=cos²y-cos²x

14.) tan (x+y) tan (x-y)= (sin²x-sin²y)/(cos²x-sin²y)

Update:

@michaelempeigne I meant (x-y) sorry mate, typo :(

    9) LHS = cos ( x + y - y )

    LHS = cos x

    LHS = RHS

    QED

    10) LHS = sin x - ( sin y / cos y )*cos x

    LHS = (sin x cos y - sin y cos x ) / cos y

    LHS = sin ( x - y ) / cos y

    LHS = RHS

    QED

    12) LHS = { [ sin ( pi / 4 + x ) cos (pi / 4 - x ) - sin ( pi / 4 - x ) cos ( pi /4 + x ) ] / [ cos ( pi / 4 - x ) cos ( pi / 4 + x ) ] } / { [ sin ( pi / 4 + x ) cos ( pi / 4 - x ) + sin ( pi / 4 - x ) cos ( pi / 4 + x ) ] / [ cos ( pi / 4 - x ) cos ( pi / 4 + x ) ] }

    LHS = sin ( pi / 4 + x - pi / 4 + x ) / sin ( pi / 4 + x + pi / 4 - x )

    LHS = sin 2x / sin ( pi / 2 )

    LHS = sin 2x

    LHS = 2 sin x cos x

    LHS = RHS

    QED

    13) what do you mean by sin ( x = y ) ??

    14) LHS = tan ( x + y ) tan ( x - y )

    LHS = [ ( tan x + tan y ) / ( 1 - tan x tan y ) ] [ (tan x - tan y ) / ( 1 + tan x tan y ) ]

    LHS = ( tan^2 x - tan^2 y ) ( 1 - tan^2 xtan^2 y )

    LHS = [ ( cos^2 y sin^2 x - sin^2 y cos^2 x ) / ( cos^2 y cos^2 x ) ] / [ ( cos^2 x cos^2 y - sin^2 x sin^2 y ) / (cos^2 x cos^2 y ) ]

    LHS = (cos^2 y sin^2 x - sin^2 y cos^2 x ) / ( cos^2 x cos^2 y - sin^2 x sin^2 y )

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

    LHS = ( sin^2 x - sin^2 y ) / ( cos^2 x - sin^2 y )

    LHS = RHS

    QED
