    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) =

    (simplify answer. Type an exact answer, using radicals as needed. Rationalize all denominators. Use intergers or fractions for any numbers in the expression)
