    The question wants me to find the angle between 90 and 360 when cosx = 2/3 but the calculator gives me 48.2 when I do the inverse of cos, however that is not between 90 and 360.

    I realise that there is more than one value, but I have forgotten what to add to 48.2 to find the other value? E.g 90, 180 etc

    Also what would I add if it was sin or tan?
