Elementary Functions
Properties of Functions
A function / is defrned as a set of all ordered pairs (x, y), zuch tha for each elementx, there
corresponds exactly one elementy.
The domain of / is the set x.
The range of / is the sety.

Inverse X'unctions
Fnnctions f xtd S are inverses of each other if
f @(x)): x for each r in the domain of g
gU@)): x for each x in the domain of /
The inverse of the fwrction / is denoted /t.
To find ,f1, switch x andy in the origrnal equation and solve the equation fory in terms of x.

Properties of Graphs
You should review the following topics:
a) Intercepts
b) Symmetry
c) Asymptotes
d) Relationships between the graph of
v: l@) and y: kf (x)
y: f(lac)
yk:f(xh)
v: l/(r)i
