tan, sin, cos inverse symbol have been changed as arctan, arcsin,arccos. Logically both are same. But UI and typing text is vary now

trignometry inverse sample file

sample for sin inverse, cos inverse etc..

Windows 8 is my operating system

step 1: open document, click insert>object>formula
step 2: In Element Table, we select f(x)
Step 3: Click on All elements of 3rd Row
Step 4: We shown arcsin, arccos in .odt file instead of sin^-1, cos^-1

arcsin() is the inverse function to sin().
There is also an explanation of the problems using an negative exponent.

But YES: A button for an inverse function should show what it produces.

If you prefer the other notation simply use sin^-1(x).

Then, could you please change your options to ARC
