Determine approximate solutions for this equation in the interval x is all real numbers [0, 2pi), to the nearest hundredth of a radian:

cosx + 0.75 = 0

cosx = -.75
the cosine is negative in II and III
take inverse cosine of +.75, this will give you the reference angle
for angle in II, take pi - reference angle
for angle in III take pi + reference angle
