    Evaluating an Inverse Trigonometric Function

    Alright. So if cos(90°-x)=sinx, which in my case is 70°, I still do not understand why Tanya then encourages me to use sin^-1(sinθ)=θ. How is cos70° to be replaced by sinθ? By the trig identities, sin(90°-x)=cosx, it is sin20° which is equivalent to cos70°. Would my equation then be accurately...

    Evaluating an Inverse Trigonometric Function

    Ah a trig identity I see. So cos(90°-70°)=sinθ cos(20°)=sinθ 0.94=sinθ sin^-1(sinθ)=θ sin^-1(0.94)=θ 0.94=θ

    Derivative of Trigonometric Functions

    Oh I guess I could change the term in the denominator to 4/3.

    Derivative of Trigonometric Functions

    ((2/√3)(√3/3)+((2/√3)(1/3))-(8/3^(3/2)))/(4/3)+((2√3)/3) =(2/9+2/(3√3)-8/(3^3/2))/((2(2√3+1))/3√3)

    Yes, I was simply confusing myself. As far as my current work, can it be simplified any more?

    Derivative of Trigonometric Functions

    =((1+tanx)(secxtanx)-(secx)(sec^2x))/(1+tanx)2 =(secxtanx+secxtan^2x-sec^3x)/(1+tanx)2 Is this looking any closer to a correct answer?
