What do you notice about the 2 tables (The original function and it’s inverse)?

The input of the original function is the output of the inverse and the output of the original function is the input of the inverse.

Notice the graphs of are mirror images of each other along y = x

### Inverse Function

A function and its inverse function can be described as the "DO" and the "UNDO" functions.

Inverse function is written as “f inverse of x”

The inverse of a functionis the set of ordered pairs obtained by interchanging the domain(input) and range (output) values in the original function.

The inverse of a functionis the set of ordered pairs obtained by interchanging the domain(input) and range (output) values in the original function.

### Steps for finding the inverse of a function:

• Replace f(x) with y.

• Switch x and y in the original equation.

• Solve for y. Replace y with
