. If no, explain why not. b. Is the inverse of g also a function? If yes, make a table of values and a graph for the inverse function g –1 . If no, explain why not. c. Let h ( x ) stand for the composite: h ( x ) = g ( f ( x )). Is the inverse of h also a function? If yes, make a table of values and a graph for the inverse function h –1 . If no, explain why not. 6. Here are some more inverses to calculate. a. Given f ( x ) = 3 3 1 x - , find f –1 ( x ). b. Given g ( x ) = 1 - x x , find g –1 ( x ). c. What was unusual about the answers to parts a and b ? (Look for something special that happened in these two answers, but not in most of the other inverses you’ve had to find.) 7. a. Given any one-to-one functions f and g , which one of these two statements must always be true? ( g f ) –1 = g –1 f –1 or ( g f ) –1 = f –1 g –1 Explain why your choice is correct. You might find it helpful to draw a diagram of functions as input-output machines. b. Find a similar fact about the inverse of a composite of three functions, ( h g f ) –1 .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
