I have a value theta I am trying to solve for. Theta isn't limited to any value (it isn't an angle, actually a bunch of constants multiplied together). say I have

sin(theta)/theta = b where b is another constant. Is there any way I can solve for theta=, in terms of b? I thought of taylor expanding the left hand side but then it just gets messy and I can't have an explicit value of theta....

thanks
