Question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Derive the formula y = arcsinh(x), the inverse hyperbolic function.

I thought the question was asking to find the derivative of the inverse function but my teacher marked it 0/10 points because he did not want the derivative...

Can "derived" mean derivative? If so...

Is there a way that I can argue that this question was poorly phrased?

Thank you.
