Review from chapter 2

Review from chapter 2

  • Relation – a mapping of input values (x-values) onto output values (y-values).

  • Here are 3 ways to show the same relation.

x y

-2 4

-1 1

1 1

y = x2

7 4 inverse functions

  • x y

  • -2

  • -1

  • 0 0

  • 1 1

x = y2

  • Inverse relation – just think: switch the x & y-values.

** the inverse of an equation: switch the x & y and solve for y.

** the inverse of a table: switch the x & y.

** the inverse of a graph: the reflection of the original graph in the line y = x.


Ex find an inverse of y 3x 6

Ex: Find an inverse of y = -3x+6.

  • Steps: -switch x & y

    -solve for y

    y = -3x+6

    x = -3y+6

    x-6 = -3y


Inverse functions

Inverse Functions

  • Given 2 functions, f(x) & g(x), if f(g(x))=x AND g(f(x))=x, then f(x) & g(x) are inverses of each other.

Symbols: f -1(x) means “f inverse of x”


Ex verify that f x 3x 6 and g x 1 3 x 2 are inverses

Ex: Verify that f(x)=-3x+6 and g(x)=-1/3x+2 are inverses.

  • Meaning find f(g(x)) and g(f(x)). If they both equal x, then they are inverses.

f(g(x))= -3(-1/3x+2)+6

= x-6+6

= x

g(f(x))= -1/3(-3x+6)+2

= x-2+2

= x

** Because f(g(x))=x and g(f(x))=x, they are inverses.


To find the inverse of a function

To find the inverse of a function:

  • Change the f(x) to a y.

  • Switch the x & y values.

  • Solve the new equation for y.

    ** Remember functions have to pass the vertical line test!


Ex a find the inverse of f x x 5

Ex: (a)Find the inverse of f(x)=x5.

(b) Is f -1(x) a function?

(hint: look at the graph!

Does it pass the vertical line test?)

  • y = x5

  • x = y5

Yes , f -1(x) is a function.


Horizontal line test

Horizontal Line Test

  • Used to determine whether a function’s inverse will be a function by seeing if the original function passes the horizontal line test.

  • If the original function passes the horizontal line test, then its inverse is a function.

  • If the original function does not pass the horizontal line test, then its inverse is not a function.


Ex graph the function f x x 2 and determine whether its inverse is a function

Ex: Graph the function f(x)=x2 and determine whether its inverse is a function.

Graph does not pass the horizontal line test, therefore the inverse is not a function.


Ex f x 2x 2 4 determine whether f 1 x is a function then find the inverse equation

Ex: f(x)=2x2-4 Determine whether f -1(x) is a function, then find the inverse equation.

y = 2x2-4

x = 2y2-4

x+4 = 2y2

OR, if you fix the tent in the basement…

f -1(x) is not a function.


Ex g x 2x 3

Ex: g(x)=2x3

y=2x3

x=2y3

OR, if you fix the tent in the basement…

Inverse is a function!
