Is inverse cosine the same as Arccos?

Arccos definition. The arccosine of x is defined as the inverse cosine function of x when -1≤x≤1. (Here cos-1 x means the inverse cosine and does not mean cosine to the power of -1).
A.

Is Secant the reciprocal of cosine?

In addition to sine, cosine, and tangent, there are three other trigonometric functions you need to know for the Math IIC: cosecant, secant, and cotangent. These functions are simply the reciprocals of sine, cosine, and tangent. Cotangent is the reciprocal of tangent.
  • What is the reciprocal of the cosine function?

    There are three reciprocal trigonometric functions, making a total of six including cosine, sine, and tangent. The reciprocal cosine function is secant: sec(theta)=1/cos(theta). The reciprocal sine function is cosecant, csc(theta)=1/sin(theta).
  • What is tan equal to?

    A convenient mnemonic for remembering the definition of the sine, cosine, and tangent is SOHCAHTOA (sine equals opposite over hypotenuse, cosine equals adjacent over hypotenuse, tangent equals opposite over adjacent). These geometrical objects are then called a tangent line or tangent plane, respectively.
  • Is Secant the opposite of sine?

    In addition to sine, cosine, and tangent, there are three other trigonometric functions you need to know for the Math IIC: cosecant, secant, and cotangent. These functions are simply the reciprocals of sine, cosine, and tangent. Cotangent is the reciprocal of tangent.
