Given that cosB=0.4612,, what is the value of B to the nearest of a degree?

Answered By Megan R

Arccos(0.4612) = 1.09 radians 

1.09 radians * (180 degrees/Pi radians) = 62.5 degrees

In your calculator,  put cos-1 (0.4612)  you will get 62.5 degree ~63 degrees.  That's it.

cos B = 0.4612

B = cos ^(-1) 0.4612  

B = 62.54 degrees

 note that cos ^ (-1) = cos-1

cos B = 0.4612

B = Arcos(0.4612)

B = 62.54 degrees

So for this you're given the value or output of the function cosb=o.4612 like f(x)=y now in order to solve for x or in this case b you need to use the inverse of the function; cos-1 which in this case is also a function, it takes the output value and gives you your input!

So cos-10.4612=62.45

Given  $\cos B=0.4612$cosB=0.4612 

we can use the function arccos, or inverse cosine, to find the angle.

This appears as  $\cos^{-1}$cos1 on your calculator.

Apply to both sides

 $\cos^{-1}\cos B=\cos^{-1}0.4612$cos1cosB=cos10.4612 

 $\cos^{-1}\cos B=B$cos1cosB=B 

 $\cos^{-1}0.4612=62.5º$cos10.4612=62.5º 

To the nearest degree we get 63º
