Find the relationship between arcsin[cos(arcsin x)] and arccos[sin(arccos x)].
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.
