  • Principal interval of cos is \([o,\pi]\)
  • \(cos(2n\pi+x)=cosx\) for all \(n\in\:N\)
Ans: \( \large\frac{2\pi}{3}\)
Since \(\large\frac{14\pi}{3}\) is not in the principal interval reduce it to its principal interval
From the above formula we get
\(\large\frac{2\pi}{3}\) lies within the principal interval
\(\Rightarrow\: cos^{-1} \bigg[ cos \bigg( 4\pi+\large\frac{2\pi}{3} \bigg) \bigg] = cos^{-1}cos \large\frac{2\pi}{3} =\large\frac{2\pi}{3}\)
