For 7, you should be using radians, not degrees.

No, youve rooted it. Transform to radians before rooting.
Or set your calculator in radians mode.

so how can I do it with degrees?with degrees, I did (arccos(1/3))^0.5, and I convert the final answer to radians, but I got 0.147

There's no reason to be doing this in degrees.
Enter
1 =
and then continue as in the image below, repeatedly pressing =.

I have never tried that button to convert degree to radians! so why here we should use radians here?I cannot just use the degree form and convert sth by divide or multiply 180/pi? when I should convert degree to radians form?

If a question is in radians, use radians on the calculator. I’m shocked your teacher never told you this.

we normally use 180/pi to convert, but I found it wrong here. so I can't use any degree forms here right? and there is no way to convert?

You could do that after the acos, but before the root, as mentioned above.
Simplest way is to put your calculator in radians mode.
