    Maybe using Sum or Difference Identity: cos(A+B) = cos A cos B - sin A sin B?

    You say to find the exact value of the expression and then you don't give the expression.

    cos(A+B)= cosAcosB-sinAsinB

    That's as far as I've gotten I'm not sure on how to use the formula

    You know that both A and B are 3rd quadrant angles. That is given. So the sin and cos of both angles must be negative.

    Use those values in the formula for cos (A+B)
