# JavaScript Math acos() Method

• Last Updated : 30 Dec, 2022

The Javascript Math.acos( ) method is used to return the arccosine of a number in radians. The Math.acos() method returns a numeric value between 0 and pi radians. The Math acos() is a static method of Math, therefore, it is always used as Math.acos(), rather than as a method of a Math object created.

`Math.acos(x)=arccos(x)=unique y, where y belongs to [0;pi] such that cos(y)=x`

Syntax:

`Math.acos(value)`

Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter as mentioned above and described below:

• Value: It is a number in radians whose arccosine you want to find.

Return value: The Math.acos() function returns the arccosine of the given number in radians.

The below examples illustrate the Math acos( ) method in JavaScript:
