COMMENTS

Angle in radians of the obtuse angle of the obtuse scalene triangle with sides of lengths 2, 3 and 4, the scalene triangle with least integer side lengths.

A140240 + A140242 + A140244 = arccos(7/8) + arccos(11/16) + arccos(-1/4) = Pi.

Arccos(-1/4) is the least positive x for which the function f(x)=cos(x)+cos(2x) attains its minimum value, which is -9/8.  [From Clark Kimberling, Oct 28 2011]
