I'm stumped on a value that needs converting to an answer 0-2π I have cos x = 1/√3 or tan x = √2/1 I come up with 54.7 degrees but obviously need to convert in to a radian value Please let me know if you can help Thanx -M

Thanx. I just thought I would add it in the angle. I failed to mention that I have .955 value. Where I'm stumped is converting this value into radians 0>2π. Can you help with that

On the contrary, you are failing to grasp the meaning of the question. $\displaystyle 0.995$ is the radian measure and $\displaystyle 0\le 0.995\le 2\pi~.$
