GUIDELINES FOR INTEGRATION
1. Learn a basic list of integration formulas.
2. Find an integration formula that resembles all or part of the
integrand, and, by trial and error, find a choice of
u
that
will make the integrand conform to the formula.
3. If you cannot find a
u
-substitution that works, try altering
the integrand. You might try a trigonometric identity,
multiplication and division by the same quantity, or addition
and subtraction of the same quantity.
o Example: Using long division before integrating

5.3 INVERSE FUNCTIONS
• LEARNING OBJECTIVES
o Verify that one function is the inverse function of another function
o Determine whether a function has an inverse function
o Find the derivative of an inverse function
• INVERSE FUNCTIONS
o Inverse Relation
Interchanging the first and second coordinates of each ordered pair in a
relation produces the inverse relation.
If a relation is defined by an equation, interchanging the variables produces
an equation of the inverse relation.
 Example: Find the inverse of the relation
( ) ( ) ( ) { }
0,1 , 5, 6 , 2, 4 − −
Solution:
( ) ( ) ( ) { }
1, 0 , 6, 5 , 4, 2 − −
Notice that the pairs in the inverse are reflected across the line
. y x ·
 Example: Find an equation of the inverse relation

Solution:

• One-to-One Functions
A function
f
is one-to-one if different inputs have different outputs—that is, if
, a b ≠
then
( ) ( ). f a f b ≠
Or a function
f
is one-to-one if when the outputs are
the same, the inputs are the same—that is if
( ) ( ), f a f b ·
then . a b ·
• Properties of One-to-One Functions and Inverses
o If a function is one-to-one, then its inverse is a function.
o The domain of a one-to-one function
f
is the range of the inverse
1
. f

o The range of a one-to-one function
f
is the domain of the inverse
1
. f

o A function that is increasing over its domain or is decreasing over its
domain is a one-to-one function.
• Horizontal Line Test
If it is possible for a horizontal line to intersect the graph of a function more
than once, then the function is not one-to-one and its inverse is not a function.
• Finding Formulas for Inverses
o Obtaining a Formula for an Inverse
If a function
f
is one-to-one, a formula for its inverse can generally be
found as follows:
1. Replace
( ) f x
with
. y
2. Interchange
x
and
. y
3. Solve for
. y
4. Replace
y
with
1
( ). f x

• Example: If the function is one-to-one, find a formula for the
inverse:
5 3
( )
2 1
x
f x
x

·
+
Solution: First we graph the function to see if it will pass the
horizontal line test. As you can see from the graph below, it will,
so we have a one-to-one function.
Now we can use the steps above to find the inverse function.

• Restricting a Domain
o If the inverse of a function is not a function, we can restrict the domain so
that the inverse is a function.

inverse, we have

This is not the equation of a function. We can, however, only
consider inputs from [ ) 0, . ∞
This will yield an inverse that is a

2. If
