The following table gives the formula for the derivatives of the inverse trigonometric functions. Scroll down the page for more examples and solutions on how to use the formulas.

**Inverse Trigonometric Functions - Derivatives**

**Formulas for the derivatives of the six inverse trig functions and derivative examples**

Examples:

Find the derivatives of the following functions

1. f(x) = (sin^{-1})^{2}

2. g(t) = cos^{-1}√(2t - 1)

3. y = tan^{-1}(x/a) + ln√((x-a)/(x+a))

** Inverse Trigonometric Functions - Derivatives - Harder Example**

Example:

Find the derivatives of

y = sec^{-1}√(1 + x^{2})

**Inverse Trigonometric Functions - Derivatives - Harder Example **

Example:

Find the derivatives of

y = sin^{-1}(cos x/(1+sinx))

**Derivatives of Inverse Trig Functions**

One example does not require the chain rule and one example requires the chain rule.

Examples:

Find the derivatives of each given function.

1. f(x) = 3sin^{-1}(x)

2. g(x) = 4cos^{-1}(3x^{2})

**Derivatives of Inverse Trig Functions**
