Example 5: Determine if , 1 ) ( 2 + = x x x f and 1 ) (= x x g are inverses of one another. Math 1330 Class Notes Section 1.5, Page 3 of 4 You need to be able to find the inverse of a function. Follow this procedure to find an inverse function: 1. Rewrite the function as ). ( x f y = 2. Interchange x and y . 3. Solve the equation you wrote in step 2 for y . 4. Rewrite the inverse using inverse notation, ). ( 1 x fExample 6: You know that 7 4 ) (= x x f is a onetoone function. Find its inverse. Example 7: Determine if 5 , ) 5 ( ) ( 2 = x x x f is a onetoone function. If it is, find its inverse.
