**Calculus (Derivatives of Inverse Functions)**

Suppose f(x) = sin(pi cos(x)). On any interval where the inverse function y = f^-1(x) exists, the derivative of f^-1(x) with respect to x is: I've come as far as y = arccos ((arcsin(x))/pi), but I am not certain this is right.

**calculus**

f(x) = (x+2)/(x+6) What is f^(-1)(-6)? (what is f inverse of -6) I found f' which was [(x+6)-(x+2)]/(x+6)^2 I set the function equal to -6 and found x to be -30/7. Used the formula to find inverse function: 1/f'(f^(-1)(-6)) So I replaced f^(-1)(-6) with -30/7 and then the new ...
