NCERT Solutions for CBSE Class 12th Maths, Chapter 2: Inverse Trigonometric Functions (Exercise 2.2) are given below

**Question 1**: 3 sin^{‒1}*x* = sin^{‒1} (3*x* ‒ 4*x*^{3}), *x* ϵ [‒1/2, 1/2]

**Solution 1:**

Let *x* = sin ϕ

Solving RHS

sin^{‒1}(3*x* ‒ 4*x*^{3}) = sin^{‒1}[3sin ϕ ‒ 4 sin^{3} ϕ] = sin^{‒1}(sin3 ϕ) = 3 ϕ.

**Question 2:** 3 cos^{‒1}*x* = cos^{‒1} (4*x*^{3} ‒ 3*x*), *x* ϵ [1/2, 1]

**Solution 2:**

Let *x* = cos ϕ

Then, ϕ = cos^{‒1} *x*

RHS = cos^{‒1}[4*x*^{3} ‒ 3*x*]

**Question 3:** tan^{‒1}(2/11) + tan^{‒1}(7/24) = tan^{‒1}(1/2)

**Solution 3:**

LHS = tan^{‒1}(2/11) + tan^{‒1}(7/24)

As, tan^{‒1} *x* + tan^{‒1} *y* = tan^{‒1} [(*x* + *y*)/1 ‒ *xy*)]

Putting *x *= 2/11 and *y* = 7/24 and solving, we have

tan^{‒1}(2/11) + tan^{‒1}(7/24) = tan^{‒1} (1/2) = RHS.

**Question 4:** 2 tan^{‒1} (1/2) + tan^{‒1}(1/7) = tan^{‒1}(31/17)

**Solution 4:**

As, 2tan^{‒1}*x* = tan^{‒1} [2*x*/(1 ‒ *x*^{2})

Using above formula, we can write 2 tan^{‒1} (1/2) = tan^{‒1} (4/3)

Now, 2 tan^{‒1} (1/2) + tan^{‒1}(1/7) = tan^{‒1} (4/3) + tan^{‒1}(1/7)

We know that,

tan^{‒1} *x* + tan^{‒1} *y* = tan^{‒1} [(*x* + *y*)/1 ‒ *xy*)]

Putting *x* = 4/3 and *y* = 1/7 in above formula and solving we have,

tan^{‒1} (4/3) + tan^{‒1}(1/7) = tan^{‒1}(31/17).
