Let $S$ and $G$ be a commutative semigroup and a commutative group respectively, $\Bbb C$ and $\Bbb R^+$ the sets of complex numbers and nonnegative real numbers respectively, $\sigma : S \to S$ or $\sigma : G \to G$ an involution and $\psi : G \to \Bbb R^+$ be fixed. In this paper, we first investigate general solutions of the equation $$g(x+ \sigma y)=g(x)g(y)+f(x)f(y)$$ for all $ x,y \in S$, where $f, g : S \to \Bbb C$ are unknown functions to be determined. Secondly, we consider the Hyers-Ulam stability of the equation, i.e., we study the functional inequality $$|g(x+\sigma y)-g(x)g(y)-f(x)f(y)|\le \psi(y)$$ for all $x,y \in G$, where $f, g : G \to \Bbb C$.
