## Homework Statement

Find and prove the identity sec^-1(x) in terms of cos^-1(arg) (Note that 1/cos^-1(x) is not equal to sec^-1(x).

## Homework Equations

None.

## The Attempt at a Solution

sec(sec^-1(x)) = x

1/cos(sec^-1(x)) = x

1/cos(cos^-1(x)) = 1/x

1/cos(cos^-1(1/x)) = 1/1/x = x

cos^-1(1/x) = sec^-1(x).

Is this correct?
