- 2. Inverse Functions A function f(x) = y takes an input x and produces one output y.
- 3. Inverse Functions A function f(x) = y takes an input x and produces one output y. We like to do the reverse, that is, if we know the output y, what was (were) the input x?
- 4. Inverse Functions A function f(x) = y takes an input x and produces one output y. We like to do the reverse, that is, if we know the output y, what was (were) the input x? This procedure of associating the output y to the input x may or may not be a function.

This procedure of associating the output y to the input x may or may not be a function. If it is a function, it is called the inverse function of f(x)

This procedure of associating the output y to the input x may or may not be a function. If it is a function, it is called the inverse function of f(x) and it is denoted as f -1(y). We say f(x) and f -1(y) are the inverse of each other.

This procedure of associating the output y to the input x may or may not be a function. If it is a function, it is called the inverse function of f(x) and it is denoted as f -1(y). We say f(x) and f -1(y) are the inverse of each other. Example A. Let f(x) = x2 = y. Suppose y = 9, what is (are) the input x that produces y = 9? Is this reverse procedure a function?

We say f(x) and f -1(y) are the inverse of each other. Example A. Let f(x) = x2 = y. Suppose y = 9, what is (are) the input x that produces y = 9? Is this reverse procedure a function? Since f(x) = x2 = 9, so x = ±√9 x = – 3, x = 3.
- 11. Inverse Functions A function f(x) = y takes an input x and produces one output y. We like to do the reverse, that is, if we know the output y, what was (were) the input x? This procedure of associating the output y to the input x may or may not be a function. If it is a function, it is called the inverse function of f(x) and it is denoted as f -1(y). We say f(x) and f -1(y) are the inverse of each other. Example A. Let f(x) = x2 = y. Suppose y = 9, what is (are) the input x that produces y = 9? Is this reverse procedure a function? Since f(x) = x2 = 9, so x = ±√9 x = – 3, x = 3. This reverse procedure takes y = 9 and associates to it two different answers so it is not a function.
