Let's see, is that a request for help or a demand for a solution?
I am not sure why you have the right to demand help. Do you?

Have you tried thinking about the values of \displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} \theta \end{align*} which make \displaystyle \displaystyle \begin{align*} \cos{\theta} = 0 \end{align*}?

No, this is directly off my homework. I definitely do not have the right to demand help. I'm just terrible at math and for the questions I do not know I put them on here for people to perhaps help me, but apparently I'm getting help with the way I ask my questions.

To be fair I think that line was part of the question.

cos(e^x+1.2)=0
