Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Huh? There are values of t, so that cos(t) = 5/3 I think what it's saying is, cos(t) [Some number] is equal to 5/3 In other words, what number of cos will be 5/3, or 1.6666....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\cos(t) = 1.67 \space \space \space or \space \space \space \frac{ 5 }{ 3 }\] I guess you could plug in terms, like cos(1), cos(2), and if you can't find the value, then it's false.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By definition, cos(x), sin(x) live between 1 and 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so no because cos cannot be bigger than 1
