3. Lesson: 4.7 Inverse Trig Functions
Consider the functions
on the interval
a. Use a graphing utility to graph and in the same viewing rectangle.
b. Approximate the interval where
c. Approximate the interval where
. How does the result compare to that of
part b? Explain.
Lesson: 4.7 Inverse Trig Functions
Goal: Use inverse trig functions to find angle measures DOD
Trig Functions take an angle as an input and output a ratio.
Inverse Trig Functions take a ratio as an input and output an angle measure.
In general, inverse functions flip the domain and range.
Specifically, for inverse trig functions, you need to restrict the domain so that we still
have a function (and not a relation). Ch_4 Page 1 Domain:
Evaluate the expression without a calculator. Ch_4 Page 2 Use an inverse trig function to write
Use Ch_4 Page 3 as a function of .
Use what? ...
