    Cos = 1/7.3683512

    angle = Cos^-1(1/7.3683512) = 82.2 degrees

    Let's start with the definition of secant. Secant is 1/cos.

    So, rearranging the equation in terms of secant, cos=1/sec

    Plugging in your values, cos=1/7.3683512

    cos=0.1357155723

    Now, to find your angle, take the inverse of cos.

    Your angle is about 1.434660645 degrees.
