now i know you can get it with plain differentiation, but i want to simplify the function first, you know, with substitution and stuff.

my approach:

substitute x = tan y;

so you get f(x) = arc cos [ sin 2y]

= arc cos [ cos (90 - 2y) ]

but how do you get the function definition in different intervals ?
