sec( theta+45)=1

We are doing simple trig equations, you know, where like 1/2 =cos(theta) and you find on the trig circle what that is equal to. So it would be 60 and 300 degrees. However, I don't know how to solve this problem:
sec( theta+45)=1
Please help! Thanks!

I don't quite understand where all this comes from: ± k·360°, k = 0, 1, 2, 3, ... Solve for θ.
I also don't understand what it means. We have learned nothing of what k is so I am really confused.
