Inverse means reciprocal. Also, the argument to the function needs to be provided so that the expression evaluates to a number.

Press 'cos'. Press 'x^-1'. Press '='. The calculator says malformed expression.

Press 'cos'. Press 'x^-1'. Press '('. Enter the number 0.5. Press ')'. Press '='.
Get 60.
