  • If $\cos x = a$, then $x =\cos^{-1}a$
Step 1:
Given $\cos(\large\frac{dy}{dx}) =$$ a$
Using information in the tool box:
$\large\frac{dy}{dx} $$=\cos^{-1}a.$
Separating the variables we get,
$dy = \cos^{-1}a$
Step 2:
Integrating on both sides we get,
$\int dy = \int\cos^{-1}a.dx$
$y = \cos^{-1}a.x + C$
$y = 1$ and $x =0$
$1 = 0.\cos^{-1}a + C$
$C = 1$
Step 3:
Substituting the value of $C$ we get
$y - x\cos^{-1}a = 1$
This is the required equation.
