waecmaths question: 

If $\cos \theta =x$and $\sin {{60}^{\circ }}=x+0.5$ ${{0}^{\circ }}<\theta <{{90}^{\circ }}$find correct to the nearest degree, the value of θ 

Option A: 

66o

Option B: 

67o

Option C: 

68o

Option D: 

69o

waecmaths solution: 

$\begin{align}  & \sin {{60}^{\circ }}=x+0.5 \\ & 0.8660=x+0.5 \\ & x=0.8660-0.5 \\ & x=0.3660 \\ & \cos \theta =0.3660 \\ & \theta ={{\cos }^{-1}}(0.3660)\approx {{69}^{\circ }}\text{ to the nearest degree} \\\end{align}$
