The way it's written in the text is 16D(squared).

So you've got 2x^2+27.36x^2-256/9=0 Here we are letting x = cos x Use the quadratic equation. Youll get 2 numbers. Probably one positive and one negative. FOR EXAMPLE you get 5 and -16 5 = cos x -16 = cos x Solve for x.
x = -14.6508 or x = .97075
13.892 degrees
Thanks alot, I'll give it a try!
I keep getting -12.55 and -1.133 which don't give me an angle!?
Did you solve the quadratic? Or are those ^^^^ the numbers you got while solving the quadratic?
Ya I used and put the values into: I end up with x = -27.36 +or- 22.83 / 4 which gives me 12.55 and -1.133
