Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I remember learning some trig in geo. You want to use one of the 3 most basic trig functions, don't think about cotan, csc, or sec for now

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0arccos looks like cos^1(x), but the 1 is not an exponent, it's a just a symbol. So you don't actually take it to the 1 power

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sin/cos/tan are all relative to the angle, so adjacent and opposite can get mixed up sometimes :p
