Sin x =  cos (19)

sin x = .9455

arcsin (sin x) = x = arcsin (.9455) = 71 degrees

Here's one thing  to remember....because the sine and  cosine are  co-functions ......

 

sin (90 - x)°   = cos x°  .....so letting x  =  19°, we have that

 

sin (90 - 19)°  = cos 19°

 

sin 71°  = cos 19°

 

So....x  = 71°

 

 

cool cool cool
