What is the formula to find the angle between the planes a1x + b1y + c1z + d1 = 0 and a2x + b2y + c2z + d2 = 0?

(a) cos θ=\frac {a1a2+b1b2+c1c2}{\sqrt {a1^2+b1^2+c1^2} \sqrt {a2^2+b2^2+c^2 }}

(b) sec θ=\frac {a1a2+b1b2+c1c2}{\sqrt {a1^2+b1^2+c1^2} \sqrt{a2^2+b2^2+c2^2 }}

(c) cos θ=\frac {a1a2.b1b2.c1c2}{\sqrt {a1^2+b1^2+c1^2} \sqrt{a2^2+b2^2+c2^2 }}

(d) cot θ=\frac {a1a2+b1b2+c1c2}{\sqrt {a1^2+b1^2+c1^2} \sqrt{a2^2+b2^2+c2^2 }}
