# (a) Define the inverse sine function, the inverse cosine function, and the inverse tangent function. (b) Find sin − 1 1 2 , cos − 1 2 2 , and tan−1 1. (c) For what values of x is the equation sin(sin−1 x) = x true? For what values of x is the equation sin−1(sin x) = x true?

(a)

To determine

To define: The inverse sine function, inverse cosine function and tangent function.

Explanation

The inverse sine function is defined as the function which is the reciprocal of sine function.

The inverse sine function is the function of sin1 with the domain [1,1] and range [π2,π2] is defined by,

sin1x=ysiny=x

The sine inverse function is also called as arcsine and denoted by arc sin.

The inverse cosine function is defined as the function which is the reciprocal of cosine function.

The inverse cosine function is the function of cos1 with the domain [1,1]

(b)

To determine

To evaluate: The value of inverse of sin112 , cos122 , and tan11 .

(c)

To determine

To evaluate: The value of x for which the inverse sine function is true.
