Solution from inside out -- spoiler Comment 2 of 2 |
cos(arcsin(x)) and sin(arccos(x)) are each sqrt(1-x^2), in the domain of x between -1 and 1, and thus always non-negative.

arcsin and arccos of the same value always produce complementary angles, so the two formulae under consideration produce complementary answers, adding to 90 if done in degrees, or pi/2 if done in radians. The domain remains -1 to 1, inclusive.
