    that would give me an answer of .9995 which is not an option a. .51 b. .97 c. -.51 d. -1.72 e. None of the above. is the answer E or have I done something wrong?

    no answer is not e you have applied totally wrong concept cos(x + y) where x and y are angles x is not -4/5 but cos x = -4/5 use : cos(x + y) = (cosx)*(cosy) - (sinx) * (siny)

    i just tried that and still didnt get and an answer. I did: cos(-4/5) Cos(-12/13) - sin(3/5) sin(5/13) (.99)(.99)- (.01)(.006) (.99)-(.00007) = .999702 @harsimran_hs4

    you are doing the same mistake please have a look at the above comment MIND IT: X IS ANGLE AND NOT -4/5 COS X = -4/5
