$\cos \left({300}^{\circ}\right) = \frac{1}{2}$

#### Explanation:

Imagine the unit circle:

We know that ${300}^{\circ}$ is in the fourth quadrant, where cosine is positive.

${300}^{\circ}$ has a reference angle of ${60}^{\circ}$, since it is ${60}^{\circ}$ away from the $x$-axis.

Since $\cos \left({60}^{\circ}\right) = \frac{1}{2}$, we know that $\cos \left({300}^{\circ}\right) = \frac{1}{2}$ as well since $\cos \left(\theta\right) > 0$ in the fourth quadrant.
