In the inverse problem, we are given the value of f(x) and asked to find the value of x . Thus, for example, if f is a one-to-one function, then f (2) = 3 if and only if f -1 (3) = 2. Finding a Formula for an Inverse Function: Suppose f is a one-to-one function. * To find a formula for f -1 , solve the equation f(x) = y for x in
