Find cos(s + t) given that cos s = 1/3, with s in quadrant 1, and sin t = -1/2, with t in quadrant 4.

if cos s = 1/3, then sin s = √8/3

t in IV

if sin t = -1/2, then cos t = √3/2

cos(s+t)

= cosscost - sinssint

= (1/3)(√3/2) - (√8/3)(-1/2)

=(√3 + √8)/6

**Reiny**, Friday, April 30, 2010 at 11:02pmI am 100% sure my answer is right.

What have they got?

Is is (√3 + 2√2)/6 perhaps.

If it is, I will let you think about it.
