  • \( sin^{-1}x+sin^{-1}y=sin^{-1} \bigg[ x\sqrt{1-y^2}+y\sqrt{1-x^2} \bigg]\)
  • \( sin^{-1}1=\large\frac{\pi}{2}\)
Given $\frac{9 \pi}{8} - \large\frac{9}{4} sin ^{-1}\large\frac{1}{3}= \large\frac{9}{4} sin^{-1}\large\frac{2\sqrt 2}{3}$
Rearrranging the terms, we need to prove that \( \large\frac{\pi}{8}=\large\frac{1}{4} \bigg[ sin^{-1}\large\frac{2\sqrt 2}{3}+sin^{-1}\large\frac{1}{3} \bigg]\)
R.H.S. = \( \large\frac{1}{4} \bigg[ sin^{-1}\large\frac{2\sqrt 2}{3}+sin^{-1}\large\frac{1}{3} \bigg]\)
We know that \( sin^{-1}x+sin^{-1}y=sin^{-1} \bigg[ x\sqrt{1-y^2}+y\sqrt{1-x^2} \bigg]\)
By taking \(x=\large\frac{2\sqrt 2}{3}\:and\:y=\large\frac{1}{3}\)
\( \Rightarrow\:\) R.H.S. = \( \large\frac{1}{4} \bigg[ sin^{-1} \bigg(\large \frac{2\sqrt 2}{3} \sqrt{1-\large\frac{1}{9}} +\large\frac{1}{3} \sqrt{1-\frac{8}{9}} \bigg) \bigg]\)
\( = \large\frac{1}{4}sin^{-1} \bigg(\large\frac{8}{9}+\large\frac{1}{9}\bigg) \)
\( \large\frac{1}{4}sin^{-1}1=\large\frac{1}{4}.\large\frac{\pi}{2}=\large\frac{\pi}{8}\) =L.H.S
