How calculate tangent to -1 of cos (1/4) without pythagoras

Best answer as selected by question asker.
Supposing that the problem provides the measure of angle in degrees, hence `cos (1/4)^o = 0.999.`
You need to evaluate the inverse of trigonometric function tangent such that:
`tan^(-1)(cos(1/4)^o) = tan^(-1)(0.999)`
Using the calculator of inverse trigonometric functions yields:
`tan^(-1)(cos(1/4)^o) = 44.971^o + n*pi`
Hence, evaluating the inverse of trigonometric function tangent yields `tan^(-1)(cos(1/4)^o) = 44.971^o + n*pi.`
