Inverse Relations If y = f ( x ) is a relation , then the inverse relation obtained by interchanging x and y is x = f ( y ) 3 e.g. y x x = + The domain of the relation is the range of its inverse relation A relation and its inverse relation are reflections of each other in the line y = x . 2 e.g. y x = 3 inverse relation is x y y = + The range of the relation is the domain of its inverse relation domain: all real x range: 0 y 2 inverse relation: x y = domain: 0 x range: all real y

Inverse Functions If an inverse relation of a function, is a function, then it is called an inverse function . Testing For Inverse Functions (1) Use a horizontal line test OR ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 unique. is , as rewritten is When 2 x g y x g y y f x = = = ( 29 2 x y i = y x Only has an inverse relation OR 2 y x = x y ± = NOT UNIQUE y x ( 29 3 x y ii = Has an inverse function OR 3 y x = 3 x y = UNIQUE
