    but are you allowed to use calculator \[\pi t/12=\pm \arccos(0.2)+2 \pi k,\forall k\in Z\]

    notice that there are infinite number of solutiond but the general solution of these is \[\huge t=\frac{12}{\pi}\arccos(0.2)+2\pi k\] where k can be chosen from interger k={....-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4...}

    this is for every period of cos wich is every 360 =2pi but if you never did it just consider your answer + and -5.321 and 360-5.321

    first \[\frac{t \pi}{12}=\cos^{-1}{0.2}=78\]
