Well, you can technically pull the 13 out to do the approximation first, and multiply it back in later on.
But the thing is, is it cos(x^2) or cos^2(x)?
Actually I realized what the problem is now: you are supposed to use radians, not degrees.
Always switch your mode to radians for calculus.
You have your calculator in "degree mode" when you should be using radians.
