RE: How to plot the inverse trig functions


Jose,

It would help if you specified the nature of the error messages you
received.

The following works fine for me.

Plot[ArcSin[x], {x, -1, 1}];

But the following produces Plot::plnr error messages because ArcSin[x] is
not a real number over parts of the plotting domain. I am guessing that that
is what your problem is.

Plot[ArcSin[x], {x, -2, 2}];
Plot::plnr: ArcSin[x] is not a machine-size real number at x = -2..
