Given function is
$f(x)=\cos ( a \cos x + b \sin x )$
Now, differentiation w.r.t x
$f^{'}(x)= \frac{d(f(x))}{dx}= \frac{d(\cos(a\cos x+ b \sin x))}{dx}$
$= -\sin(a\cos x+b\sin x).\frac{d(a\cos x+b\sin x)}{dx}$
$= -\sin(a\cos x+b\sin x).(-a\sin x+b\cos x)$
$= (a\sin x-b\cos x)\sin(a\cos x+b\sin x).$
Therefore, differentiation w.r.t x  $(a\sin x-b\cos x)\sin(a\cos x+b\sin x)$
