    ok, imagine you have a 30 60 90 triangle |dw:1358813789639:dw| cos(30) = sqrt(3)/2 inverse cos (30) = 1/cos(30) 1/cos(30) = 1/(sqrt(3)/2)) 1/cos(30) = 2/(sqrt(3))

    \[\cos x=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\]\[x=\cos^{-1}\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\]

    plug that into a calculator and see what you get

    cos(30) = 2/sqrt(3) inverse cos (30) = 1/cos(30) 1/cos(30) = 1/(2/sqrt(3)) 1/cos(30) = (sqrt(3)/2))

    you do not need a calculator to solve this.

    x=60?

    actually x= 30. cos(30) = 2/(sqrt(3)) and cos^-1(30) = sqrt(3)/2
