Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well when is cosx = 1 the first time in the circle? At π (because x=180 degrees)... right? So now when does it occur again, well it doesnt happen again until we go around in a full circle. So another 2π and this will happen indefinitely for any integer k. So the answer is: π + 2πk
