 I'm looking to solve the equation

 (13 Cos[q](5+8 Cos[f]))^2+(13 Sin[q](7+8
Sin[f]))^2?49

 so that I can graph phi as a function of theta
in the first quadrant only. A graph of the
solution obtained using the Solve command produces
unexpected results and I haven't used Mathematica
much so I'm having trouble intrepreting the
results that the Reduce operation produces. I
understand that the solution is periodic but can
someone interpret what the other symbols in the
solution mean, e.g., C[1], &&,  etc.?
