Math 1330 Section 54 Inverse Trigonometric Functions We are often interested in nding and working with the inverses of functions This will also be the case with trig functions But there s a problem For a function to have an inverse it must be onetoone and trig functions are not onetoone To get around this we begin by limiting the domain of each of the trig functions so that over the restricted domain the function is onetoone We ll work with the inverse functions for sine cosine and tangent in the streaming lectures The reciprocal functions are treated in the online text We ll start by looking at the inverse sine function Here are the graphs of the l functlons f x s1nx and gx E on the 1nterval 271 271 Th1s con rms that f x sinx is not a onetoone function 717 717 Ifwe 11m1t the doma1n of the functlon to 7 then the functlon 1s onetoone The range ofthis function is l l So on this limited interval we can define an inverse function We note the inverse sine function as So on this limited interval we can define an inverse function We note the inverse sine function as f x sin 1 x or f x arcsinx The domain of the inverse function will be 1 l and the range of the inverse function will be Here is the graph of fx sin 1 x Next we ll look at the inverse cosine function Since the cosine function is also not one toone we ll need to restrict the domain to an interval which will give us a onetoone function Then it makes sense to talk about an inverse function We can t use the same interval that we did for the inverse sine function however This interval does not produce a onetoone function Instead we ll use the interval 0 7 Here s the graph of f x cosx on the interval 0 It The range of this function is 1 1 So on this limited interval we can define an inverse function We note the inverse cosine function as fx cos 1 x or fx arccosx The domain of the inverse function Will be 1 l and the range of the inverse function will be 7r Here is the graph of fx cos 1 x Finally we ll look at the graph of the tangent function We ll restrict the domain to the 77quot 77quot interval 3 so that we can de ne an inverse function Here is the graph of fx tanx on the interval The range of this function is 0 00 J We can find an inverse tangent function on this limited domain We note the function as fx tan 1 x or fx arctanx The domain of the inverse function is 0 0 and 77quot 77quot the range is 7 Here is the graph of the inverse tangent function Most o en you will be expected to evaluate inverse trig functions That is given a problem such as sin391 x y you will want to nd the number in the interval 772 whose sine is x The simplest way to do this will be to rewrite the problem as sin y x and then use the chart we developed for working with unit circle values You will need to note the domain when working with problems ofthis type In some cases you can draw and label a right triangle in the appropriate quadrant or you can work with identities to evaluate These properties may be helpful when evaluating inverse trig problems sinsin39lx x on 71 l coscos39l x x on 71 l tantan39l 0 x on 7 cc 00 4 t 1 2 sm smx 7 x on 2 2 cosquot cosx x on 0 7 tanquot tanx x on Finally you will

72 1 We read this as log base b ofx We typically write logb x y and note that by x The form logb x y is called logarithmic form and the form by x is called exponential form Ifb 10 we write logx y and note that 10y x We call this the common logarithm If b e we write lnx y and note that ey x We call this the natural logarithm You should be able to write an equation that is in logarithmic form in exponential form and Vice versa Example 1 Write in exponential form lnx 3 Example 2 Write in logarithmic form 103x 4 You should be able to simplify expressions involving logarithms Example 3 Simplify

graphing logarithmic functions Suppose f x logb x Where b gt 0 b 1 This is the logarithmic function with base I If 1 gt1 then the graph of this function has the shape shown here For this function domain is 0 0 and range is 0 0 The graph of the function passes through the key point 1 0 The graph has a vertical asymptote at x 0 If 0 lt b lt 1 then the graph of the function has the shape shown here For this function domain is 0 0 and range is 0 0 The graph of the function passes through the key point 1 0 The graph has a vertical asymptote at x 0 The functions f x bx and gx logb x are inverses of one another You should be able to graph log functions using transformations You should be sure to graph the key point and label the asymptote Example 15 Graph the function using transformations Label the key point and the asymptote fx10g3x 2 Example 16 Graph the function using transformations Label the key point and the asymptote fxlog5x2l Example 17 Graph the function using
