    There is a formula for this. First let me relabel your picture so you will understand the formula better.

    \[\cos A=\frac{a^2+d^2-b^2-c^2}{2(ad+bc)}\]

    did you get how how found cos A ? he just applied cosine rule, twice. once in triangle ABD and then in triangle BCD, also knowing A+C = 180, so cos C = -cos A
