Round trip distance is double the earth-moon distance. Speed of light is 3*10^8 m/s. Distance = Speed * time, so Time = Distance /Speed Plug in numbers and calculate time accordingly.

If you mean to find the value of cos(2θ) given cos(θ)=7/13, then use the double angle formula: cos(2θ)=cos²(θ)-sin²(θ) where: sin²(θ) =(1-cos²(θ)) =120/169
