Given sin a = 15/17 with a in Quadrant I and cos beta = 4/5 with beta in QuandrantIV, find the exact value of cos(a+beta)

  • trig - ,

    sin a = 15/17 , with a in I, so cos a = 8/17

    cos b = 4/5, with b in IV, then sin b = -3/5

    cos(a+b) = cosa cosb - sina sinb
    = (8/17)(4/5) - (15/17)(-3/5)
    = (32 + 45)/85
    = 77/85
