Isn't this a quadratic in cosx ?
6y^2y5=0
y=(1+sqrt(1+120))/12
where y= cos x
then solve for x

by formula
cosx = (2 ± √124)/12
= .76129 or 1.09.. , the latter is undefined
x = 2.436 radians
or x = cos^1 ( (2√124)/12)

bobpursley is right  Calculus  Reiny, Monday, October 10, 2011 at 9:47am
I misread your equation, should be
x = cos^1 ( 1 ± √121)/12)
= cos^1 (5/6)
