1 46 5 TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS Section 5-9 Inverse Trigonometric Functions Inverse Sine Function Inverse Cosine Function Inverse Tangent Function Summar Inverse Cotangent, Secant, and Cosecant Functions (Optional) A brief review of the general concept of inverse functions discussed in Section 4- should prove helpful before proceeding with this section. In the following bo we restate a few important facts about inverse functions from that section. FACTS ABOUT INVERSE FUNCTIONS For f a one-to-one function and f its inverse:. If (a, b) is an element of f, then (b, a) is an element of f, and conversel.. Range of f Domain of f 3. Domain of f Range of f DOMAIN f RANGE f f f () f() RANGE f f DOMAIN f 4. If f ( ), then f() for in the domain of f and in the domain of f, and conversel. f() f f () 5. f( f ()) for in the domain of f f ( f()) for in the domain of f All trigonometric functions are periodic; hence, each range value can be associated with infinitel man domain values (Fig. ). As a result, no trigonometric function is one-to-one. Without restrictions, no trigonometric function has an inverse function. To resolve this problem, we restrict the domain of each function so that it is one-to-one over the restricted domain. Thus, for this restricted domain, an inverse function is guaranteed.

2 5-9 Inverse Trigonometric Functions 47 FIGURE sin is not one-to-one over (, ). 4 4 Inverse trigonometric functions represent another group of basic functions that are added to our librar of elementar functions. These functions are used in man applications and mathematical developments, and will be particularl useful to us when we solve trigonometric equations in Section 6-5. FIGURE sin is one-to-one over [/, /]. Inverse Sine Function How can the domain of the sine function be restricted so that it is one-to-one? This can be done in infinitel man was. A fairl natural and generall accepted wa is illustrated in Figure. If the domain of the sine function is restricted to the interval [/, /], we see that the restricted function passes the horizontal line test (Section 4-) and thus is one-to-one. Note that each range value from to is assumed eactl once as moves from / to /. We use this restricted sine function to define the inverse sine function. DEFINITION INVERSE SINE FUNCTION The inverse sine function, denoted b sin or arcsin, is defined as the inverse of the restricted sine function sin, / /. Thus, sin and arcsin are equivalent to sin where / /, In words, the inverse sine of, or the arcsine of, is the number or angle, / /, whose sine is. To graph sin, take each point on the graph of the restricted sine function and reverse the order of the coordinates. For eample, since (/, ),

3 48 5 TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS (, ), and (/, ) are on the graph of the restricted sine function (Fig. 3), then (, /), (, ), and (, /) are on the graph of the inverse sine function, as shown in Figure 3. Using these three points provides us with a quick wa of sketching the graph of the inverse sine function. A more accurate graph can be obtained b using a calculator. FIGURE 3 Inverse sine function.

Find to four significant digits using a calculator. (A) sin.93 (B) arcsin (.35) (C) cot [sin (.3446)] Inverse Cosine Function To restrict the cosine function so that it becomes one-to-one, we choose the interval [, ]. Over this interval the restricted function passes the horizontal line test, and each range value is assumed eactl once as moves from to (Fig. 5). We use this restricted cosine function to define the inverse cosine function. DEFINITION INVERSE COSINE FUNCTION The inverse cosine function, denoted b cos or arccos, is defined as the inverse of the restricted cosine function cos,. Thus, cos and arccos are equivalent to cos where, In words, the inverse cosine of, or the arccosine of, is the number or angle,, whose cosine is. Figure 6 compares the graphs of the restricted cosine function and its inverse. Notice that (, ), (/, ), and (, ) are on the restricted cosine graph. Reversing the coordinates gives us three points on the graph of the inverse cosine function.

Over this interval the restricted function passes the horizontal line test, and each range value is assumed eactl once as moves across this restricted domain (Fig. 8). We use this restricted tangent function to define the inverse tangent function. tan 3 3 DEFINITION 3 INVERSE TANGENT FUNCTION The inverse tangent function, denoted b tan or arctan, is defined as the inverse of the restricted tangent function tan, / /. Thus, tan and arctan are equivalent to tan where / / and is a real number In words, the inverse tangent of, or the arctangent of, is the number or angle, / /, whose tangent is.
