  1. correct. Personally, I like the old notation...

    arcsin is the old abbreviation for sin^-1, inverse sine ....Some confuse sin^1 Theta with 1/sinTheta. Arcsin eliminates that confusion.

    If f(x)=cosx + 3 how do I find f inverse(1)? Thanks y = cos(x) + 3 the inverse of this is x = cos(y) + 3 solve for y and you have your inverse The cos function only has a range of [-1,1], so the range of f(x) is [2,4]. this means
