 TL;DR Summary

This formula has to do with finding the quickest route between 2 horizontal points—
A=(B/2(pit+sin(t)))(1cos(t))
^When B and t (theta) are known we can find A, but when A and B are known, is it possible to find t (radians)?

^When B and t (theta) are known we can find A, but when A and B are known, is it possible to find t (radians)? I’ve been told it isn’t. Is that true? Why or why not?
