# How to find inverse cos

Hello,

I need to find the inverse cos of -0.25. It's supposed to be 104.478 degrees. ( cos *-1* (-0.25) )

When I use Mathf.Acos it returns me different number.

Why is this happening?

It works in Radians, where 2*pi = 360 degrees

If you need to use degrees use this in conjunction

Radians to degrees http://docs.unity3d.com/Documentation/ScriptReference/Mathf.Rad2Deg.html
