sketching arcsin, arccos, arctan, arccsc, arcsec, arccotSketching sine and cosine curves are relatively easy. You just need the vertical translation, the magnitude, the period, and the horizontal translation. A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #2 20050917 04:48:53
Re: sketching arcsin, arccos, arctan, arccsc, arcsec, arccotTo restate what I just said in a slighty more organized form: A logarithm is just a misspelled algorithm. #3 20051001 22:26:59
Re: sketching arcsin, arccos, arctan, arccsc, arcsec, arccotHow about just turning your paper 90 degrees when going from a trig function to the arc or inverse trig function? igloo myrtilles fourmis #4 20051001 23:54:59
Re: sketching arcsin, arccos, arctan, arccsc, arcsec, arccotTo find the inverse graph of a function, draw the function and then reflect it with the line of symmetry being y=x. To John, I tried your method and it seems that it returns the inverse of the negative function. eg. y=sin x would become y=arcsin x. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #5 20051002 02:34:28
Re: sketching arcsin, arccos, arctan, arccsc, arcsec, arccotI guess if it was tracing paper you could flip the paper over through y=x and look through the back. igloo myrtilles fourmis
