from the unit circle i know that cos(x) = sqrt(2)/2 when x = 3pi/4 and 5pi/4

?? no pi radians is equivalent to 180 degrees there are 2 possible answers (2 diff angles satisfy cos(x) = sqrt2/2) i gave you answers in radians, you have to convert to degrees by replacing pi with 180

oh... i'm sorry so the answer is 180 degrees & pi ? I don't understand how to get to 180 degrees. :/

hmm ok apparently i am only confusing you more just look at the unit circle and find sqrt2/2, the answers will be the angle measures

i hope i'm not annoying or anything lol you don't have to help me but is the answer for \[\sin^{1} (1)\] = 270 degrees, (3 pi/2) ?
