4 Inverse Functions

p. 422

y= x2 x -2 y 4 1 0 1 Equation Table of values Graph -1 0 1 . • Here are 3 ways to show the same relation.Review from chapter 2 • Relation – a mapping of input values (x-values) onto output values (y-values).

. x = y2 x 4 1 y -2 -1 0 1 ** the inverse of a graph: the reflection of the original graph in the line y = x. 0 1 ** the inverse of a table: switch the x & y. y x ** the inverse of an equation: switch the x & y and solve for y.• Inverse relation – just think: switch the x & y-values.

Ex: Find an inverse of y = -3x+6. • Steps: -switch x & y -solve for y y = -3x+6 x = -3y+6 x-6 = -3y x6 y 3 1 y x2 3 .

if f(g(x))=x AND g(f(x))=x. then f(x) & g(x) are inverses of each other.Inverse Functions • Given 2 functions. Symbols: f -1(x) means “f inverse of x” . f(x) & g(x).

If they both equal x. then they are inverses. . they are inverses.Ex: Verify that f(x)=-3x+6 and g(x)=-1/3x+2 are inverses. f(g(x))= -3(-1/3x+2)+6 = x-6+6 g(f(x))= -1/3(-3x+6)+2 = x-2+2 =x =x ** Because f(g(x))=x and g(f(x))=x. • Meaning find f(g(x)) and g(f(x)).

2. Solve the new equation for y. 3. Change the f(x) to a y. ** Remember functions have to pass the vertical line test! . Switch the x & y values.To find the inverse of a function: 1.

x = y5 3.Ex: (a)Find the inverse of f(x)=x5. 5 x 5 y 5 5 (hint: look at the graph! Does it pass the vertical line test?) xy y x 5 Yes . y = x5 2. (b) Is f -1(x) a function? 1. . f -1(x) is a function.

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

.Ex: Graph the function f(x)=x2 and determine whether its inverse is a function. therefore the inverse is not a function. Graph does not pass the horizontal line test.

OR. y = 2x2-4 x = 2y2-4 x+4 = 2y2 x4 y2 2 x4 y 2 f -1(x) is not a function. if you fix the tent in the basement… 1 y x2 2 . then find the inverse equation.Ex: f(x)=2x2-4 Determine whether f -1(x) is a function.

if you fix the tent in the basement… 4x 2 .Ex: g(x)=2x3 y=2x3 x=2y3 x y3 2 3 x y 2 3 y x 2 y 3 Inverse is a function! OR.
