# Sum and difference formulas in trigonometry

Find the value of each of the following under the given conditions:

tan alpha = -4/3, alpha lies in quadrant 2; cos beta = 5/6, beta lies in quadrant 1

(a) sin ( alpha + beta) =

(b) cos( alpha + beta) =

(c) sin ( alpha - beta) =

(d) tan ( alpha - beta) =
