The video focuses on inverse trig functions, their graphing, and how to find angles and ratios using them. Key points include the importance of restricting domains, calculating principal values, and understanding inverse functions for accurate solutions. The speakers emphasize using the horizontal line test, switching x and y for inverses, and the significance of restricted values within specific intervals. Practical examples and calculator usage are highlighted to showcase the application of these concepts. The overall goal is to help viewers grasp the fundamentals of inverse trig functions and feel comfortable working with them.

### 00:00:00

In this segment of the video, the instructor explains inverse trig functions, providing a review of trigonometric functions in relation to angles and sides of a right triangle. The instructor discusses how to calculate missing sides using the sine function and emphasizes the concept of ratios. They demonstrate finding the sine of an angle and finding an angle given a sine ratio using inverse sine. The key steps include calculating the inverse sine of both sides to find the angle that corresponds to a given ratio.

### 00:03:00

In this segment of the video, the speaker discusses inverse trig functions and how to graph them. They explain that the inverse of a trig function involves switching the x and y values. They demonstrate this graphically by showing how the x-axis becomes the y-axis and vice versa. The speaker further explains that not all graphs of inverse trig functions are invertible, as they may not pass the vertical or horizontal line test. They mention limiting the graphs to principal values to ensure invertibility.

### 00:06:00

In this segment of the video, the concept of the horizontal line test to ensure invertibility is discussed. The speaker restricts the domain of the function to the interval from negative pi/2 to pi/2, defining the principal values. The domain will become the range, with the range becoming the domain. The graph of this restricted function is shown, emphasizing the restricted values within the unit circle in quadrants one and four. This restriction is necessary to avoid periodic motion and have a clear understanding of the function’s behavior within specific intervals.

### 00:09:00

In this segment, the speaker discusses using a calculator to find the inverse sign of X in radians. They advise switching the calculator to radians mode when working with trig functions. The speaker then demonstrates graphing the cosine function, mentioning the importance of restricting the domain and showing points in the first two quadrants. The concept of inverse cosine (Arc cosine) is introduced as a way to find the inverse cosine function. The speaker reminds viewers to remain calm and not be alarmed by the term “inverse tangent.”

### 00:12:00

In this part of the video, the focus is on graphing the inverse function of tangent. The speaker discusses restricting the domain of the tangent function for graphing purposes, particularly between negative pi over 2 and pi over 2. They mention using the horizontal line test to identify the appropriate domain and emphasize the importance of inverting the function. The speaker then delves into finding the inverse function by switching X and Y and solving for Y, demonstrating the process with a specific example equation. This segment emphasizes the importance of understanding inverse functions and working through the mathematical steps to find them accurately.

### 00:15:00

In this part of the video, the instructor discusses how to inverse sign a function, leading to the result Y for the given equation. They then introduce the concept of inverse functions and discuss the transformation of a sine function, focusing on horizontal dilation and translation. The instructor visually demonstrates the stretching and shifting of the function, marking key points like -2 and 0 due to the dilation and translation actions.

### 00:18:00

In this segment of the video, the presenter discusses manipulating the parent function by shifting and stretching it. They explain how the domain of the original function becomes the range of the inverse function. To find the domain of the inverse function, they demonstrate algebraic methods by plugging in endpoint values. The presenter calculates the domain of the inverse function and confirms it using graphical representation. They then transition into discussing the importance of inverse functions and how they will be used in upcoming equations.

### 00:21:00

In this segment of the video, the speaker discusses finding sine values of 1/2 on the unit circle, identifying the angles pi/6 and 5pi/6 as solutions within the restricted domain of pi/2 to -pi/2. They explain the concept of principal values and how to determine which angle to use. They also discuss finding the inverse cosine values of radical 2 over 2, identifying the angles pi/4 and 3pi/4 within the restricted domains of quadrants 1 and 2. The importance of negative values in cosine calculations is emphasized. The speaker briefly mentions the complexity of dealing with tangent values on the unit circle.

### 00:24:00

In this part of the video, the speaker discusses how to find the tangent of a specific angle by rationalizing the denominator to be radical 3 over 2. They explain that this occurs at pi over three and caution against choosing the incorrect sign in the restricted area. The positive version is applicable in the first quadrant. The speaker advises practicing these concepts to become more comfortable with them.
