Calculate the times at which the water level is at 18m during the first 24 hours.

My solution:

first I found the cos equation: H(t)=-6cos(π/6t)+16

then..

Let π/6t=Θ

18=-6cosΘ+16

18-16=-6cosΘ

Θ=1.230959417

Then I don't know what's next....

arccos(-1/3) = 1.91 = pi-1.23

or pi+1.23 = 4.37

So, t = (6/pi) * (1.91 or 4.37)

t = 3.64 or 8.35 hours
