It is time for an example. 10.6 The Inverse Trigonometric Functions 703 Example 10.6.1. 1. Find the exact values of the following. (a) arccos (b) arcsin 1 2 √ (e) arccos cos (f) arccos cos 2 2 √ 11π 6 (g) cos arccos − 3 5 2 2 (c) arccos − π 6 1 (d) arcsin − 2 (h) sin arccos − 3 5 2. Rewrite the following as algebraic expressions of x and state the domain on which the equivalence is valid. (a) tan (arccos (x)) (b) cos (2 arcsin(x)) Solution. 1. (a) To find arccos 1 , we need to find th...
