4.10 Inverse Trigonometric Functions

By the end of your studying, you should know:
Onscreen applet instructions:
The applet allows you to experiment with the sine, cosine, and tangent functions to limit their domains for the purpose of defining their inverse functions. Use the pulldown menu to select the sine, cosine, or tangent. Then drag the mouse along the curve to identify a domain over which an inverse function can be defined.
