    For everyone who responded to my question within the last 24 hours,
    please accept my apologies.  Right after I sent the question, I realized
    the answer!
    When people said that arccos = inverted cosine, I immediately thought of
    the trig. function that is the inversion of cosine, which is secant.  But
    then I remembered that there is another thing that people call an
    inverted cosine, which is cos^-1.  I just never learned any other term
    for the second meaning of inverted cosine than cos^-1.
    Well, thanks for the help anyway!
