Homework Help: Math - Solving for Trig Equations

Posted by Anonymous on Thursday, November 22, 2007 at 9:01pm.

For the following equation, why cannot I not solve it? I keep getting an error.

--
2cosx - 3 = 0
--

I first isolated for "x"
2cosx-3 = 0
(2cosx/2) = (3/2)
x = cos^-1(3/2)
x = error? why?

--
My textbook answer:
30 and 330 degrees
