I get that we have to put it into radical form, but I don't understand the process. Can someone walk me through it and explain it?

you want the angle Ų so that
We know that if the cosŲ is negative, then Ų is in either the II or III quadrant
we also know that cos 60° =+1/2
so Ų = 180-60 or 180+60
Ų = 120° or 240°
in radians it would be 2π/3 or 4π/3
your calculator will only give you the angle closest to the origin,
and you will get 120 if your calculator is set to degrees.
