#### Question

Show that f(x) = sin x is an increasing function on (−π/2, π/2) ?

#### Solution

\[f\left( x \right) = \sin x\]

\[f'\left( x \right) = \cos x > 0 \forall x \in \left( \frac{- \pi}{2}, \frac{\pi}{2} \right) \left[ \because \text { Cos function is positive in first and fourth quadrant } \right]\]

\[\text { So,}f\left( x \right)\text { is increasing on }\left( \frac{- \pi}{2}, \frac{\pi}{2} \right).\]

Is there an error in this question or solution?
