Can some one help me solve this for C, Shamefully, I cant remember my HS math.

cos(270-D-C)+cos(C-90)=b

in this equation D and b are given variables and i have to find C value

for example: b=100, D=90

Do you want to find the value of the C or Cos C? the values b=100 and d=90 it is example or given?

Thanks srirahulan,

Here, b and D are just an example. I want to be able to find C for any given b and D values. That's why I want to solve it for C

This used to be easy when I was in high school, but alas, most of my math is gone now.

Any ideas?
