    Knowing w now, you now know that cos x=4/w. you know w, get x.

    ok \[\sin (30)=\frac{ w }{ 6 }\] \[(6)*\sin 30=\frac{ w }{ 6 }*6\] \[6\sin 30=w \] w=3

    Now that you found w, use \(\large \cos(\theta) = \frac{w}{4}\)

    sorry, \(\large \theta = x\). So \[\large \cos(x) = \frac{3}{4}\]\[\large x = \cos^{-1} \left(\frac{3}{4}\right)\]

    \[\cos (x)=\frac{ 3 }{ 4 }\]

    \(\large \theta\) = theta, it signifies an angle measurement.

    if cos x= 3/4 , punch in your calculator arccos(3/4) or equivalently, cos^-1(3/4)

    arccos or cos^-1 is a function which returns degree or radians to fulfill the cos ratio. good job.
