Inverse Functions Name: _________________________

For each function below: 1. Complete the table on the left. 2. Plot f(x) (plot all f(x) functions in the same color). 3. On the right fill in the table and write the equation for the inverse function. 4. Plot g(x) (plot all your g(x) functions in the same second color).

#1) f(x) = 2x – 3
X Y

g(x)=
X Y

2) f(x) = x2 – 2
X Y X

g(x)=
Y

Inverse Functions

#3) f(x) = x1/2
X Y

g(x)=
X Y

4) f(x) = x3
X Y

g(x)=
X Y

When you have both sets of tables complete and all the functions graphed, look at the relationship between each function and its inverse. What do you notice?
