Let be the primitive 13th roots of unity. We see that , where the generator of this cyclic group is .

You need to find the subgroup of the order 3 and order 4 for the above group and correspond them to the subfields of .

The subgroup of order 3 for is generated by .

Thus , where .

You can find the L exactly in the same way.
