Inverse Functions The letter x is traditionally used as the independent variable. So, when we concentrate on f –1 rather than on f , we usually reverse the roles of x and y and write Calcellation Equations: 1 ( ) ( ) f x y f y x - = = 1 1 ( ( )) for every in ( ( )) for every in f f x x x A f f x x x B - - = = Prof. Phan Quoc Khanh 11/14/2014
How to Find Inverse Functions 1. Write y=f(x) 2. Solve this equation for x in terms of y (if possible) 3. To express f -1 as a function of x , interchange x and y . The resulting equation is y = f -1 (x) Prof. Phan Quoc Khanh 11/14/2014

Example. Find the inverse of the function f ( x ) = x 3 + 2 Solution: 1. We first write y=x 3 + 2 2. Then, we solve this equation for x : 3. Finally, we interchange x and y : 3 1 3 2 2 ( ) x y x y f y - = - = - = 1 3 ( ) 2 y f x x - = = - Prof. Phan Quoc Khanh 11/14/2014
Graphs of Inverse Functions Let a point (a, b) be on the graph of f • Then b=f(a) and so a=f -1 (b) This means that the point (b, a) is on the graph of f -1 The points (a, b) and (b, a) are symmetric about the line y=x The graph of f -1 is obtained by reflecting the graph of f about the line y=x .
