cos^2(60+x)-cos^2(60-x)
= [(1+cos(120+2x))-(1+cos(120-2x))]/2; since cos^2x=[1+cos2x]/2
= [cos(120+2x)-cos(120-2x)]/2
= [-2*sin120*sin2x]/2; since cos(A+B)-cos(A-B)=-2sinA*sinB
= -sin120*sin2x = -(√3/2)*sin2x
 
range(sinA)=(-1,1)
Hence range(-(√3/2)*sin2x)=(-√3/2, √3/2)
Minimum value of given expression is -√3/2
