    Need Help with basic Arc secant

    How do you find arcsecant= 3.291 in this value range: 90 degrees< arc <180 degrees.

    I need to see how to do it. Thank you.

    What you wish to find is an angle x such that
    sec(x) = 3.291

    \frac{1}{cos(x)} = 3.291

    cos(x) = \frac{1}{3.291}

    x = acs \left ( \frac{1}{3.291} \right )
