Use trigonometric equations and inverse trigonometric functions to solve problems. Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions Vocabulary inverse sine functions inverse cosine function inverse tangent function Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions You have evaluated trigonometric functions for a given angle. You can also find the measure of angles given the value of a trigonometric function by using an inverse trigonometric relation. Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions Reading Math The expression sin-1 is read as “the inverse sine. ” In this notation, -1 indicates the inverse of the sine function, NOT the reciprocal of the sine function. Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions The inverses of the trigonometric functions are not functions themselves because there are many values of θ for a particular value of a. For example, suppose that you want to find cos-1 . Based on the unit circle, angles that measure and have a cosine of radians . So do all angles that are coterminal with these angles. Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions Example 1: Finding Trigonometric Inverses Find all possible values of cos-1 Step 1 Find the values between 0 and 2 radians for which cos θ is equal to. Use the x-coordinates of points on the unit circle. Holt Algebra 2 . Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions Example 1 Continued Find all possible values of cos-1 .

Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions Because more than one value of θ produces the same output value for a given trigonometric function, it is necessary to restrict the domain of each trigonometric function in order to define the inverse trigonometric functions. Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions Trigonometric functions with restricted domains are indicated with a capital letter. The domains of the Sine, Cosine, and Tangent functions are restricted as follows. Sinθ = sinθ for {θ| } θ is restricted to Quadrants I and IV. Cosθ = cosθ for {θ| } θ is restricted to Quadrants I and II. Tanθ = tanθ for {θ| } θ is restricted to Quadrants I and IV. Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions These functions can be used to define the inverse trigonometric functions. For each value of a in the domain of the inverse trigonometric functions, there is only one value of θ. Therefore, even though tan-1 has many values, Tan-11 has only one value. Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions Reading Math The inverse trigonometric functions are also called the arcsine, arccosine, and arctangent functions.

Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions Example 3: Safety Application A painter needs to lean a 30 ft ladder against a wall. Safety guidelines recommend that the distance between the base of the ladder and the wall should be of the length of the ladder. To the nearest degree, what acute angle should the ladder make with the ground? Holt Algebra 2 Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions Example 3 Continued Step 1 Draw a diagram. The base of the ladder should be (30) = 7. 5 ft from the wall. The angle between the ladder and the ground θ is the measure of an acute angle of a right triangle. 7. 5 Holt Algebra 2 θ Inverses of Trigonometric 13 -4 Functions Example 3 Continued Step 2 Find the value of θ.
