**Reiny**, Monday, August 31, 2009 at 12:27amsince the = and + sign are on the same key, I will assume cos(a=b) is a typo and you meant

cos(a+b)

cos(a+b) = cos(a)cos(b) - sin(a)sin(b)

since a is in II and sin(a) = 3/5, cos(a) = -4/5

since b in in I and cos(b) = 5/13, sin(b) = 12/13

so cos(a+b) = (4/5)(5/13) - (3/5)(12/13)

= (-20-36)/65

= -56/65
