Hello!
There is no any example for acos() function. Please put this one below the acos() function's description.
Thank you!

Example:
<?php
    $arg
=0.5;
   
$val=acos($arg);
    echo
"acos(" . $arg . ") = " . $val . " radians.<br/>";
    echo
"Pi value = " . pi() . "<br/>";   
    echo
"acos(" . $arg . ") = " . $val/pi()*180 . " degrees<br/>";
?>
