Dear Ashray,

( 1 -  COS X ) / COS X = ( ROOT 2 -1 ) SIN X / ( COS X)

( 1 - COS X) / SIN X = ROOT 2 -1

SQUARING BOTH SIDES

(1-COS X) ^ 2 / [ (1+COS X ) * (1-COS X) ] = 3 - 2 ROOT 2

(1-COSX)/1+COSX = 3 -2ROOT 2

1-COSX = 3 - 2ROOT2 +3COSX -2ROOT2 COS X

2ROOT2 - 2 = COS X * ( 4 - 2 ROOT2 )

COS X = ( ROOT 2 - 1) / ( 2 - ROOT 2)

=1/ROOT 2

>>>> X= PI/4

Best Of luck
