A function f is said to be one-to-one if, for any choice of numbers x 1 and x 2 , x 1 x 2 , in the domain of f , then f ( x 1 ) f ( x 2 ). Which of the following are one - to - one functions? {(1, 1), (2, 4), (3, 9), (4, 16)} {(-2, 4), (-1, 1), (0, 0), (1, 1)} one-to-one not one-to-one

f denote a one-to-one function y = f (x) . The inverse of f , denoted f -1 , is a function such that f -1 ( f ( x )) = x for every x in the domain f and f ( f -1 ( x )) = x for every x in the domain of f -1 . In other words, the function f maps each x in its domain to a unique y in its range. The inverse function
