# Ch 22: Solving Trigonometric Equations

Watch online video lessons to learn about inverse trigonometric functions, restricted domains, sinusoidal functions and more. Take the quizzes that follow each lesson to test your knowledge of trigonometric equations.

## Solving Trigonometric Equations - Chapter Summary and Learning Objectives

The processes involved in solving trigonometric equations are a lot like the steps required to work with other types of functions. In fact, once you discover the relationship between trig functions and their inverses, you're off to the races. Use the lessons in this chapter to explore some of the basic properties of inverse trigonometric functions and take a look at their graphs, so you can successfully find or solve the following:

• Trigonometric equations with restricted domains
• Trigonometric equations with infinite solutions
• Sinusoidal functions for data sets
