Use ${\mathrm{cos}}^{2}\left(a\right)+{\mathrm{sin}}^{2}\left(a\right)=1$ first on both sides then factorize.

$\mathrm{sin}\left(x\right)[\mathrm{sin}\left(2x\right)-\mathrm{sin}\left(x\right)]=\mathrm{sin}\left(4x\right)[\mathrm{sin}\left(5x\right)-\mathrm{sin}\left(4x\right)]$

Now use$\mathrm{sin}\left(A\right)-\mathrm{sin}\left(B\right)$ as a product on both sides and simplify (giving some roots $\mathrm{sin}\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)=0)$

$\mathrm{sin}\left(x\right)\cdot 2\mathrm{cos}\left(\frac{3x}{2}\right)\mathrm{sin}\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)=\mathrm{sin}\left(4x\right)\cdot 2\mathrm{cos}\left(\frac{9x}{2}\right)\mathrm{sin}\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)$

then write$\mathrm{sin}\left(C\right)\mathrm{cos}\left(D\right)$ as a difference of sines on both sides and simplify.

$\frac{12}{\mathrm{sin}\left(\frac{5x}{2}\right)+\mathrm{sin}\left(\frac{-x}{2}\right)}=\frac{12}{\mathrm{sin}\left(\frac{17x}{2}\right)+\mathrm{sin}\left(\frac{-x}{2}\right)}$

Write the difference of sines as a product and solve

$\mathrm{sin}\left(\frac{5x}{2}\right)-\mathrm{sin}\left(\frac{17x}{2}\right)=0$

Now use

then write

Write the difference of sines as a product and solve
