    arccos 3/7 - your calculator will give u the value of t in first quadrant the other value is in 4th quadrant

    right - set to rad arccos means the angle whose cos is given value or - on calculator button this might be cos -1

    no - the cosine of the angle 2t = 3/7 you need to find the angle whose cosine is 3/7 first find 3 / 7 on ur calculator then you need to press the cos-1 (or arccos) button

    cos-1 does not mean 1 / cos in this context

    no there is probably a button marked cos but you first press the shift key then cos button to get value of the angle

    cos-1 notation is a bit confusing - in Europe they use arccos which makes more sense

    cos (3/7)=.91. Do I press shift key before entering cos (3/7)? don't know the shift key

    calculators vary you either press shift cos (3/7) or (3/7) shift cos
