Given cos a=-7/25 in quadrant II , and sin b=-12/13, in quadrant IV , find cos(a+b) and sin2a

  • mth, trig -

    sin a = 24/25
    cos b = 5/13

    now apply addition formulas

    Thanks but how did you find that? My numbers came out completely different -_-

    If a is in QII, sin is positive, cos is negative.

    7^2 + 24^2 = 25^2, so it's a 7-24-25 triangle

    If b is in QIV, sin is negative, cos is positive.

    5^2 + 12^2 = 13^2, so it's a 5-12-13 triangle.

    what did you do to find the missing sin/cos values?
