Ok, So with this problem it says to use double angle or half angle formula. I have the formulas in my notes just not sure how to apply them to the problem I feel like I should be using the double formula though. Here's the problem:

Yes the double-angle formula for $\cos$ would be useful. There are a few different forms but consider that $\cos (2 \theta) = \cos^2 (\theta) - \sin^2 (\theta)$. Substituting in we get,
