[Tutor] Maths: getting degrees from radians (or am I wrong?)

Hello,
I have this little math problem. I have this formula from wich I get a
dot product between two vectors.
cos(ß) = A.B / |A|.|B| = -0.0634
So this would give me radians, right?
Then if I use
math.degrees( -0.0634 )
This gives me a value of -3.6325524211294193.
However I have a book in front of me who says I should get a value of
93.635 degrees. mmmmm
Btw, in the book, the equation is written
ß = cos-1(-0.0634) = 93.635, where -1 is actually an exponent. Maybe
I'm just interpreting this wrong?
Thanks
Bernard
