# Solve cos x = -2/3 for 0 ≤ x < 2π (round to the nearest hundredth of a radian)

I received the values 131.81 and 228.209 which is incorrect. I've tried to come up with the correct answer multiple times. Solve cos x = -2/3 for 0 ≤ x < 2π (round to the nearest hundredth of a radian). Thanks for your help!

This was posted earlier--and agrees with what another tutor posted:

A negative cosine means the angle is in either the 2nd or 3rd quadrant, where x is negative.

With a cosine of 2/3, the basic angle is 0.841 radians (+ or -)

Since we have -2/3, the angle is pi ± 0.841

If this is not what you are being given, then tell us what it's supposed to be, and we can maybe figure out the disconnect.

The measure your give are in degrees (and correct), yet the problem asks for radians.12/14/19
