**Steve**, Saturday, March 2, 2013 at 7:38pmSince E and F are midpoints, EF ║ CB, and has length CB/2 = 1

CE = AC/2 = 3

Label angles

CGB = a

EBC = b

FCB = c

so, intriangle CGB, a+b+c = 180 degrees

we want

cos a = cos *180 - (b+c))

= -cos(b+c)

= sinb sinc - cosb cosc

Looking at the right triangles,

EB = √13 and FC = √10, so we have

cos a = 3/√13 * 3/√10 - 2/√13 * 1/√10

= 9/√130 - 2/√130

= 7/√130

= 7√130 / 130

k+w+f = 7+130+130 = 267
