# Inverse Trigonometric Derivatives

In this lesson, we will look at how to find the derivatives of inverse trigonometric functions.

### Table Of Derivatives Of Inverse Trigonometric Functions

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. Example:
Differentiate Solution:
We can use the above formula and the chain rule. Example:
Differentiate Solution:
We use the product rule and chain rule. 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))
