    Proof of inverse cosech(x)

    How would you prove cosech^-1(x) = sinh^-1(-1/x)?

    Both cosech and sinh are meant to mean inverse. Thanks in advance.

    let \sinh^{-1} \frac 1x = y. solve for x and find the \text{csch}^{-1} x from that

    Spoiler:

    \sinh^{-1} \frac 1x = y

    \Rightarrow \frac 1x = \sinh y

    \Rightarrow x = \frac 1{\sinh y} = \text{csch } y

    \Rightarrow \text{csch}^{-1} x = y = \sinh^{-1} \frac 1x
