All I knew is that \(\displaystyle sin(\beta+\gamma)=sin(180°-\alpha)=sin\alpha\), but I think it doesn't help in this case.

check that equation again, because it's not an identityIf \(\displaystyle \alpha+\beta+\gamma=180°\), prove that \(\displaystyle \color{red}2sin\alpha+2sin\beta+2sin\gamma=4sin\alpha sin\beta sin\gamma\)!

If $x+y+z=\pi$ then

\(\displaystyle \sin2x+\sin2y+\sin2z=4\sin x\sin y\sin z\)

\(\displaystyle \sin2x+\sin2y+\sin2z=4\sin x\sin y\sin z\)

&=6\sin x\sin y\sin z+\sin x\cos y\cos z+\sin y\cos x\cos z+\sin z\cos x\cos y \\

&=6\sin x\sin y\sin z+\sin x\cos x+\sin y\cos y+\sin z\cos z \\

\frac32(\sin2x+\sin2y+\sin2z)&=6\sin x\sin y\sin z \\

\sin2x+\sin2y+\sin2z&=4\sin x\sin y\sin z\end{align*}\)
