# Inverse Cosine Calculator

The calculator will find the inverse cosine of the given value in radians and degrees.

The inverse cosine $$$y=\cos^{-1}(x)$$$ or $$$y=\operatorname{acos}(x)$$$ or $$$y=\operatorname{arccos}(x)$$$ is such a function that $$$\cos(y)=x$$$.

The domain of the inverse cosine is $$$[-1,1]$$$, the range is $$$[0,\pi]$$$.

It is an even function.
