    Answer: x = 115.5°

    Step-by-step explanation:

    I suppose that we have the equation:

    2*cos(x + 40°) = 1/2 for 0° < x < 360°

    Let’s solve this.

    First, we isolate the cosine function:

    cos(x + 40°) = (1/2)/2 = 1/4

    cos(x + 40°) = 1/4

    Now we can use the Acos(x) function, remember that:

    Acos(cos(x)) = x

    cos(Acos(x)) = x

    Then if we use this function in both sides, we get:

    Acos( cos(x + 40°)) = Acos(1/4)

    x + 40° = Acos(1/4) = 75.5°

    x = 75.5° + 40° = 115.5°

    x = 115.5°
