**[solved] rearranging equation of a circle**

the equation of a circle with radius 1 around the origin is normally given by:

x²+y²=1

or parametrically:

x= sin(t)

y= cos(t)

If you rearrange the parametric equations to get rid of t you get:

arcsin(x)=arccos(y)

which should also be the equation of the same circle.

So my question is, how do you rearrange arcsin(x)=arccos(y) to get x²+y²=1 ?
