Question:

If $\sin ^{-1} x=\frac{\pi}{5}$ for some $x \in(-1,1)$, then the value of $\cos ^{-1} x$ is ____________________.

Solution:

Given: $\sin ^{-1} x=\frac{\pi}{5}, \forall x \in(-1,1)$

We know

$\sin ^{-1} x+\cos ^{-1} x=\frac{\pi}{2}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{\pi}{5}+\cos ^{-1} x=\frac{\pi}{2}$

$\Rightarrow \cos ^{-1} x=\frac{\pi}{2}-\frac{\pi}{5}=\frac{3 \pi}{10}$

Thus, the value of $\cos ^{-1} x$ is $\frac{3 \pi}{10}$.

If $\sin ^{-1} x=\frac{\pi}{5}$ for some $x \in(-1,1)$, then the value of $\cos ^{-1} x$ is $\frac{3 \pi}{10}$
