[STRIKE](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Given that cos C = 12/13 where C is a reflex and sin D = 3/5 where D is acute, find the exact value of cos ( C + D ).

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the Addition Formulae: cos(A+B) = cosAcosB-sinAsinB

cos(12/13)cos(2/5) - sin(1/13)sin(3/5) = 0.999831....

As it says "exact value" I assume my long decimal answer is incorrect. I have inputed it all straight into my calculator. Help me please [/STRIKE]

Sorry - I've worked out my silly mistake. Thank you for looking
