The arcsine function returns the
angle
whose sine
is the given value. The arcsine is a
trigonometric function.
The arcsine is the
functional inverse
of the
sine function.
If sine(θ) = opposite/hypotenuse then
sin^{1}(opposite/hypotenuse) = θ;
Arcsine is written arcsin or
sin^{1}.
Definition: y = sin^{1} x
if and only if x = sin y.
