INVERSE TRIGONOMETRIC
FUNCTIONS

2.1 Overview

## 2.1.1 Inverse function

Inverse of a function f exists, if the function is one-one and onto, i.e, bijective.
Since trigonometric functions are many-one over their domains, we restrict their
domains and co-domains in order to make them one-one and onto and then find
their inverse. The domains and ranges (principal value branches) of inverse
trigonometric functions are given below:
Functions Domain Range (Principal value
branches)

y = sin1x [1,1] ,
2 2
y = cos1x [1,1] [0,]

y = cosec1x R (1,1) , {0}
2 2

y = sec1x R (1,1) [0,]
2

y = tan1x R ,
2 2
y = cot1x R (0,)
Notes:
(i) The symbol sin1x should not be confused with (sinx)1. Infact sin1x is an
angle, the value of whose sine is x, similarly for other trigonometric functions.
(ii) The smallest numerical value, either positive or negative, of is called the
principal value of the function.
INVERSE TRIGONOMETRIC FUNCTIONS 19

## (iii) Whenever no branch of an inverse trigonometric function is mentioned, we mean

the principal value branch. The value of the inverse trigonometic function which
lies in the range of principal branch is its principal value.
2.1.2 Graph of an inverse trigonometric function
The graph of an inverse trigonometric function can be obtained from the graph of
original function by interchanging x-axis and y-axis, i.e, if (a, b) is a point on the graph
of trigonometric function, then (b, a) becomes the corresponding point on the graph of
its inverse trigonometric function.
It can be shown that the graph of an inverse function can be obtained from the
corresponding graph of original function as a mirror image (i.e., reflection) along the
line y = x.

Matrices
3.1 Overview
3.1.1 A matrix is an ordered rectangular array of numbers (or functions). For example,

x 4 3
A= 4 3 x
3 x 4

The numbers (or functions) are called the elements or the entries of the matrix.
The horizontal lines of elements are said to constitute rows of the matrix and the
vertical lines of elements are said to constitute columns of the matrix.
3.1.2 Order of a Matrix
A matrix having m rows and n columns is called a matrix of order m n or simply
m n matrix (read as an m by n matrix).
In the above example, we have A as a matrix of order 3 3 i.e.,
3 3 matrix.
In general, an m n matrix has the following rectangular array :

## a11 a12 a13 a1n

a a22 a23 a2 n
21
A = [aij]m n = 1 i m, 1 j n i, j N.

am1 am 2 am3 amn m n

The element, aij is an element lying in the ith row and jth column and is known as the
(i, j)th element of A. The number of elements in an m n matrix will be equal to mn.
3.1.3 Types of Matrices
(i) A matrix is said to be a row matrix if it has only one row.
MATRICES 43

## (ii) A matrix is said to be a column matrix if it has only one column.

(iii) A matrix in which the number of rows are equal to the number of columns,
is said to be a square matrix. Thus, an m n matrix is said to be a square
matrix if m = n and is known as a square matrix of order n.
(iv) A square matrix B = [bij]nn is said to be a diagonal matrix if its all non
diagonal elements are zero, that is a matrix B = [bij]nn is said to be a
diagonal matrix if bij = 0, when i j.
(v) A diagonal matrix is said to be a scalar matrix if its diagonal elements are
equal, that is, a square matrix B = [bij]nn is said to be a scalar matrix if
bij = 0, when i j
bij = k, when i = j, for some constant k.
(vi) A square matrix in which elements in the diagonal are all 1 and rest are
all zeroes is called an identity matrix.
In other words, the square matrix A = [aij]nn is an identity matrix, if
aij = 1, when i = j and aij = 0, when i j.
(vii) A matrix is said to be zero matrix or null matrix if all its elements are
zeroes. We denote zero matrix by O.
(ix) Two matrices A = [aij] and B = [bij] are said to be equal if
(a) they are of the same order, and
(b) each element of A is equal to the corresponding element of B, that is,
aij = bij for all i and j.
3.1.4 Additon of Matrices
Two matrices can be added if they are of the same order.
3.1.5 Multiplication of Matrix by a Scalar
If A = [aij] mn is a matrix and k is a scalar, then kA is another matrix which is obtained
by multiplying each element of A by a scalar k, i.e. kA = [kaij]mn
3.1.6 Negative of a Matrix
The negative of a matrix A is denoted by A. We define A = (1)A.
3.1.7 Multiplication of Matrices
The multiplication of two matrices A and B is defined if the number of columns of A is
equal to the number of rows of B.
44 MATHEMATICS

## Let A = [aij] be an m n matrix and B = [bjk] be an n p matrix. Then the product of

the matrices A and B is the matrix C of order m p. To get the
(i, k)th element cik of the matrix C, we take the ith row of A and kth column of B,
multiply them elementwise and take the sum of all these products i.e.,
cik = ai1 b1k + ai2 b2k + ai3 b3k + ... + ain bnk
The matrix C = [cik]mp is the product of A and B.
Notes:
1. If AB is defined, then BA need not be defined.
2. If A, B are, respectively m n, k l matrices, then both AB and BA are
defined if and only if n = k and l = m.
3. If AB and BA are both defined, it is not necessary that AB = BA.
4. If the product of two matrices is a zero matrix, it is not necessary that
one of the matrices is a zero matrix.
5. For three matrices A, B and C of the same order, if A = B, then
AC = BC, but converse is not true.
6. A. A = A2, A. A. A = A3, so on
3.1.8 Transpose of a Matrix
1. If A = [aij] be an m n matrix, then the matrix obtained by interchanging
the rows and columns of A is called the transpose of A.
Transpose of the matrix A is denoted by A or (AT). In other words, if
A = [aij]mn, then AT = [aji]nm.
2. Properties of transpose of the matrices
For any matrices A and B of suitable orders, we have
(i) (AT)T = A,
(ii) (kA)T = kAT (where k is any constant)
(iii) (A + B)T = AT + BT
(iv) (AB)T = BT AT
3.1.9 Symmetric Matrix and Skew Symmetric Matrix
(i) A square matrix A = [aij] is said to be symmetric if AT = A, that is,
aij = aji for all possible values of i and j.
MATRICES 45

## (ii) A square matrix A = [aij] is said to be skew symmetric matrix if AT = A,

that is aji = aij for all possible values of i and j.
Note : Diagonal elements of a skew symmetric matrix are zero.
(iii) Theorem 1: For any square matrix A with real number entries, A + AT is
a symmetric matrix and A AT is a skew symmetric matrix.
(iv) Theorem 2: Any square matrix A can be expressed as the sum of a
symmetric matrix and a skew symmetric matrix, that is

(A + A T ) (A A T )
A= +
2 2
3.1.10 Invertible Matrices
(i) If A is a square matrix of order m m, and if there exists another square
matrix B of the same order m m, such that AB = BA = Im, then, A is said
to be invertible matrix and B is called the inverse matrix of A and it is
denoted by A1.
Note :
1. A rectangular matrix does not possess its inverse, since for the products
BA and AB to be defined and to be equal, it is necessary that matrices A
and B should be square matrices of the same order.
2. If B is the inverse of A, then A is also the inverse of B.
(ii) Theorem 3 (Uniqueness of inverse) Inverse of a square matrix, if it
exists, is unique.
(iii) Theorem 4 : If A and B are invertible matrices of same order, then
(AB)1 = B1A1.
3.1.11 Inverse of a Matrix using Elementary Row or Column Operations
To find A1 using elementary row operations, write A = IA and apply a sequence of
row operations on (A = IA) till we get, I = BA. The matrix B will be the inverse of A.
Similarly, if we wish to find A1 using column operations, then, write A = AI and apply a
sequence of column operations on A = AI till we get, I = AB.
Note : In case, after applying one or more elementary row (or column) operations on
A = IA (or A = AI), if we obtain all zeros in one or more rows of the matrix A on L.H.S.,
then A1 does not exist.

## 3.2 Solved Examples

Example 1 Construct a matrix A = [a ij] 22 whose elements a ij are given by
aij = e2ix sin jx .
Solution For i = 1, j = 1, a 11 = e2x sin x
For i = 1, j = 2, a 12 = e2x sin 2x
For i = 2, j = 1, a 21 = e4x sin x
For i = 2, j = 2, a 22 = e4x sin 2x

e 2 x sin x e 2 x sin 2 x
Thus A = 4x 4x
e sin x e sin 2 x

Example 2 If A = ,B= ,C= ,D= , then
1 2 4 3 1 2 5 7 9

## which of the sums A + B, B + C, C + D and B + D is defined?

Solution Only B + D is defined since matrices of the same order can only be added.
Example 3 Show that a matrix which is both symmetric and skew symmetric is a zero
matrix.
Solution Let A = [aij] be a matrix which is both symmetric and skew symmetric.
Since A is a skew symmetric matrix, so A = A.
Thus for all i and j, we have aij = aji. (1)
Again, since A is a symmetric matrix, so A = A.
Thus, for all i and j, we have
aji = aij (2)
Therefore, from (1) and (2), we get
aij = aij for all i and j
or 2aij = 0,
i.e., aij = 0 for all i and j. Hence A is a zero matrix.

4.1 Overview
To every square matrix A = [aij] of order n, we can associate a number (real or complex)
called determinant of the matrix A, written as det A, where aij is the (i, j)th element of A.
a b
If A , then determinant of A, denoted by |A| (or det A), is given by
c d

a b
|A| = = ad bc.
c d

Remarks
(i) Only square matrices have determinants.

## 4.1.1 Determinant of a matrix of order one

Let A = [a] be the matrix of order 1, then determinant of A is defined to be equal to a.
4.1.2 Determinant of a matrix of order two

a b
Let A = [aij] = be a matrix of order 2. Then the determinant of A is defined
c d
as: det (A) = |A| = ad bc.
4.1.3 Determinant of a matrix of order three
The determinant of a matrix of order three can be determined by expressing it in terms
of second order determinants which is known as expansion of a determinant along a
row (or a column). There are six ways of expanding a determinant of order 3
corresponding to each of three rows (R1, R2 and R3) and three columns (C1, C2 and
C3) and each way gives the same value.
66 MATHEMATICS

A a21 a22 a23
a31 a32 a33

## a22 a23 a12 a13 a12 a13

|A| = a11 (1)1+1 a a33 + a 21
(1) 2+1
a32 a33 + a 31
(1)3+1
a22 a23
32

= a11(a22 a33 a23 a32) a21 (a12 a33 a13 a32) + a31 (a12 a23 a13 a22)
Remark In general, if A = kB, where A and B are square matrices of order n, then
|A| = kn |B|, n = 1, 2, 3.
4.1.4 Properties of Determinants
For any square matrix A, |A| satisfies the following properties.

## (i) |A| = |A|, where A = transpose of matrix A.

(ii) If we interchange any two rows (or columns), then sign of the determinant
changes.

(iii) If any two rows or any two columns in a determinant are identical (or
proportional), then the value of the determinant is zero.

(iv) Multiplying a determinant by k means multiplying the elements of only one row
(or one column) by k.

## (v) If we multiply each element of a row (or a column) of a determinant by constant

k, then value of the determinant is multiplied by k.

## (vi) If elements of a row (or a column) in a determinant can be expressed as the

sum of two or more elements, then the given determinant can be expressed as
the sum of two or more determinants.
DETERMINANTS 67

## (vii) If to each element of a row (or a column) of a determinant the equimultiples of

corresponding elements of other rows (columns) are added, then value of
determinant remains same.
Notes:
(i) If all the elements of a row (or column) are zeros, then the value of the determinant
is zero.
(ii) If value of determinant becomes zero by substituting x = , then x is a
factor of .
(iii) If all the elements of a determinant above or below the main diagonal consists of
zeros, then the value of the determinant is equal to the product of diagonal
elements.
4.1.5 Area of a triangle
Area of a triangle with vertices (x1, y1), (x2, y2) and (x3, y3) is given by

x1 y1 1
1
x2 y2 1
2 .
x3 y3 1

## 4.1.6 Minors and co-factors

(i) Minor of an element aij of the determinant of matrix A is the determinant obtained
by deleting ith row and jth column, and it is denoted by Mij.

## (iii) Value of determinant of a matrix A is obtained by the sum of products of elements

of a row (or a column) with corresponding co-factors. For example
|A| = a11 A11 + a12 A12 + a13 A13.

(iv) If elements of a row (or column) are multiplied with co-factors of elements of
any other row (or column), then their sum is zero. For example,
a11 A21 + a12 A22 + a13 A23 = 0.
4.1.7 Adjoint and inverse of a matrix
(i) The adjoint of a square matrix A = [aij]nn is defined as the transpose of the matrix
68 MATHEMATICS

[aij]nn, where Aij is the co-factor of the element aij. It is denoted by adj A.

## a11 a12 a13 A11 A 21 A 31

If A a21 a22 a23 , then adj A A12 A 22 A 32 , where Aij is co-factor of aij.
a31 a32 a33 A13 A 23 A 33

## (iii) A square matrix A is said to be singular or non-singular according as |A| = 0 or

|A| 0, respectively.
(iv) If A is a square matrix of order n, then |adj A| = |A|n1.
(v) If A and B are non-singular matrices of the same order, then AB and BA are
also nonsingular matrices of the same order.
(vi) The determinant of the product of matrices is equal to product of their respective
determinants, that is, |AB| = |A| |B|.

## (vii) If AB = BA = I, where A and B are square matrices, then B is called inverse of

A and is written as B = A1. Also B1 = (A1)1 = A.
(viii) A square matrix A is invertible if and only if A is non-singular matrix.

1
(ix) If A is an invertible matrix, then A1 = (adj A)
|A|

## 4.1.8 System of linear equations

(i) Consider the equations: a1x + b1 y + c1 z = d1
a2x + b2 y + c2 z = d2
a3x + b3 y + c3 z = d3,
In matrix form, these equations can be written as A X = B, where

a1 b1 c1 x d1
a b2 c2 , X y and B d2
A= 2
a3 b3 c3 z d3

DETERMINANTS 69

## (iii) A system of equations is consistent or inconsistent according as its solution

exists or not.
(iv) For a square matrix A in matrix equation AX = B
(a) If |A| 0, then there exists unique solution.
(b) If |A| = 0 and (adj A) B 0, then there exists no solution.
(c) If |A| = 0 and (adj A) B = 0, then system may or may not be consistent.

Example 6 Prove that (A1) = (A)1, where A is an invertible matrix.
Solution Since A is an invertible matrix, so it is non-singular.
We know that |A| = |A|. But |A| 0. So |A| 0 i.e. A is invertible matrix.
Now we know that AA1 = A1 A = I.
Taking transpose on both sides, we get (A1) A = A (A1) = (I) = I
Hence (A1) is inverse of A, i.e., (A)1 = (A1)

5.1 Overview

## 5.1.1 Continuity of a function at a point

Let f be a real function on a subset of the real numbers and let c be a point in the
domain of f. Then f is continuous at c if

lim f ( x) = f (c)
x c

More elaborately, if the left hand limit, right hand limit and the value of the function
at x = c exist and are equal to each other, i.e.,

x c x c

## then f is said to be continuous at x = c.

5.1.2 Continuity in an interval
(i) f is said to be continuous in an open interval (a, b) if it is continuous at every
point in this interval.

h 0 h
f (c + h ) f (c )
derivative, denoted by Lf (c), and lim+ , called right hand derivative,
h0 h
denoted by R f (c), are finite and equal.

## (i) The function y = f (x) is said to be differentiable in an open interval (a, b) if

it is differentiable at every point of (a, b)
(ii) The function y = f (x) is said to be differentiable in the closed interval [a, b]

(i) The exponential function with positive base b > 1 is the function
y = f (x) = bx. Its domain is R, the set of all real numbers and range is the set
of all positive real numbers. Exponential function with base 10 is called the
common exponential function and with base e is called the natural exponential
function.
(ii) Let b > 1 be a real number. Then we say logarithm of a to base b is x if bx=a,
Logarithm of a to the base b is denoted by logb a. If the base b = 10, we say
it is common logarithm and if b = e, then we say it is natural logarithms. logx
denotes the logarithm function to base e. The domain of logarithm function
is R+, the set of all positive real numbers and the range is the set of all real
numbers.

Since the left hand derivative and right hand derivative both are equal, hence f is

Thus lim f ( x) lim f ( x), therefore, lim f ( x) does not exist. Hence f is discontinuous

## Thus, lim f ( x) lim f ( x) 8 . Hence f is continuous at x = 0 only if a = 8.

Example 22 Examine the differentiability of the function f defined by
2 x 3, if 3 x 2
f ( x) x 1 , if 2 x 0
x 2 , if 0 x 1

Solution The only doubtful points for differentiability of f (x) are x = 2 and x = 0.
Differentiability at x = 2.
f (2 h) f (2)
Now L f (2) = lim
h 0 h
2(2 h) 3 (2 1) 2h
= lim lim lim 2 2 .
h 0 h h 0 h h 0

f (2 h) f (2)
and R f (2) = lim
h 0 h
2 h 1 ( 2 1)
= lim
h 0 h
h 1 (1) h
= lim lim 1
h 0 h h 0 h

## Thus R f (2) L f (2). Therefore f is not differentiable at x = 2.

Similarly, for differentiability at x = 0, we have
f (0 h) f (0)
L (f (0)= lim
h 0 h
0 h 1 (0 2)
= lim
h 0 h
h 1 1

which does not exist. Hence f is not differentiable at x = 0.

## A point c in the interior of the domain of f, is called

(i) local maxima, if there exists an h > 0 , such that f (c) > f (x), for all x in
(c h, c + h).

## The value f (c) is called the local maximum value of f .

(ii) local minima if there exists an h > 0 such that f (c) < f (x), for all x in
(c h, c + h).

## The value f (c) is called the local minimum value of f.

A function f defined over [a, b] is said to have maximum (or absolute maximum) at
x = c, c [a, b], if f (x) f (c) for all x [a, b].

Similarly, a function f (x) defined over [a, b] is said to have a minimum [or absolute
minimum] at x = d, if f (x) f (d) for all x [a, b].

## 6.1.7 Critical point of f : A point c in the domain of a function f at which either

f (c) = 0 or f is not differentiable is called a critical point of f.

## (i) If f (x) changes sign from positive to negative as x increases through

c, then c is a point of local maxima, and f (c) is local maximum value.
APPLICATION OF DERIVATIVES 119

## (ii) If f (x) changes sign from negative to positive as x increases through

c, then c is a point of local minima, and f (c) is local minimum value.

## (iii) If f (x) does not change sign as x increases through c, then c is

neither a point of local minima nor a point of local maxima. Such a
point is called a point of inflection.

## (b) Second Derivative test: Let f be a function defined on an interval I and

c I. Let f be twice differentiable at c. Then

(i) x = c is a point of local maxima if f (c) = 0 and f (c) < 0. In this case
f (c) is then the local maximum value.

(ii) x = c is a point of local minima if f (c) = 0 and f (c) > 0. In this case
f (c) is the local minimum value.

(iii) The test fails if f (c) = 0 and f (c) = 0. In this case, we go back to
first derivative test.

6.1.8 Working rule for finding absolute maxima and or absolute minima :

## Step 1 : Find all the critical points of f in the given interval.

Step 2 : At all these points and at the end points of the interval, calculate the
values of f.

Step 3 : Identify the maximum and minimum values of f out of the values
calculated in step 2. The maximum value will be the absolute maximum
value of f and the minimum value will be the absolute minimum
value of f.
