Discuss why this statement is incorrect: $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{arccos}\left(\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\right)=x\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ for all $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x.$

Determine whether the following statement is true or false and explain your answer: $\mathrm{arccos}\left(-x\right)=\pi -\mathrm{arccos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x.$

True . The angle, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\theta }_{1}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ that equals $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{arccos}\left(-x\right)\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ , $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x>0\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ , will be a second quadrant angle with reference angle, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\theta }_{2}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ , where $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\theta }_{2}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ equals $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{arccos}x$ , $x>0\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ . Since $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\theta }_{2}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ is the reference angle for $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\theta }_{1}$ , ${\theta }_{2}=\pi -{\theta }_{1}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{arccos}\left(-x\right)\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ = $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\pi -\mathrm{arccos}x$ -
