  1. 1. If you mean sec^2[tan^-1x], use the fact that
    sec (tan^-1x)= sqrt(x^2+1)/sqrt(1).
    Imagine a right triangle with sides x, 1 and sqrt(1+x^2). Side x is opposite the angle with tangent equal to x.
    Square the secant and you get x^2 + 1

    2. For the angle in question, as part of a right triangle:
    adjacent side (not hypotentuse) = x
    opposite side = sqrt(1-x^2)
    hypotenuse = 1
    sin = sqrt(1-x^2)
    The last line is your answer.
