- n. the inverse function of the cosine; the angle that has a cosine equal to a given number
The inverse of the cosine function is the arccosine function.
Graph of the hyperbolic arccosine function. arccosine function is limited to the non-negative reals, that is, to real numbers y such that y!
The range of the arccosine function is limited to values of y between, and including, 0 and
These are known as the hyperbolic arcsine, hyperbolic arccosine, hyperbolic arctangent, hyper - bolic arccosecant, hyperbolic arcsecant, and hyperbolic arccotangent.
Based on the information shown in Fig. Test 1-1 and given in Question 4, it appears that the hyperbolic arccosine of 0 is (a) equal to 1 (b) equal to 0 (c) non-negative (d) greater than or equal to 1 (e) not de ﬁ ned 7.
