1 One-to-one and Inverse Functions Digital Lesson

2 Copyright © by Houghton Mifflin Company, Inc. All rights reserved. 2 A function y = f (x) with domain D is one-to-one on D if and only if for every x 1 and x 2 in D, f (x 1 ) = f (x 2 ) implies that x 1 = x 2. A function is a mapping from its domain to its range so that each element, x, of the domain is mapped to one, and only one, element, f (x), of the range. A function is one-to-one if each element f (x) of the range is mapped from one, and only one, element, x, of the domain. Definition: Functions

(0, 7) (4, 7) Horizontal Line Test

The ordered pairs of : y = |x| + 1 are {(-2, 3), (-1, 2), (0, 1), (1, 2), (2, 3)}. x = |y| + 1 are {(3, -2), (2, -1), (1, 0), (2, 1), (3, 2)}. The inverse relation is not a function. It pairs 2 to both -1 and +1. Inverse Relation

6 Copyright © by Houghton Mifflin Company, Inc. All rights reserved. 6 The ordered pairs of the function f are reversed to produce the ordered pairs of the inverse relation. Example: Given the function f = {(1, 1), (2, 3), (3, 1), (4, 2)}, its domain is {1, 2, 3, 4} and its range is {1, 2, 3}. The inverse relation of f is {(1, 1), (3, 2), (1, 3), (2, 4)}. The domain of the inverse relation is the range of the original function. The range of the inverse relation is the domain of the original function. Ordered Pairs

The ordered pairs of f are given by the equation. Example: Find the graph of the inverse relation geometrically from the graph of f (x) = x y The ordered pairs of the inverse are given by. Example: Ordered Pairs

All rights reserved. 8 Example: Find the inverse relation algebraically for the function f (x) = 3x + 2. y = 3x + 2 Original equation defining f x = 3y + 2 Switch x and y. 3y + 2 = x Reverse sides of the equation. To calculate a value for the inverse of f, subtract 2, then divide by 3. y = Solve for y. To find the inverse of a relation algebraically, interchange x and y and solve for y. Example: Inverse Relation Algebraically

9 Copyright © by Houghton Mifflin Company, Inc. All rights reserved. 9 For a function y = f (x), the inverse relation of f is a function if and only if f is one-to-one. For a function y = f (x), the inverse relation of f is a function if and only if the graph of f passes the horizontal line test. If f is one-to-one, the inverse relation of f is a function called the inverse function of f. The inverse function of y = f (x) is written y = f -1 (x). Inverse Function

All rights reserved. 10 y = f(x) y = x y = f -1 (x) Example: From the graph of the function y = f (x), determine if the inverse relation is a function and, if it is, sketch its graph. The graph of f passes the horizontal line test. The inverse relation is a function. Reflect the graph of f in the line y = x to produce the graph of f -1. x y Example: Determine Inverse Function

11 Copyright © by Houghton Mifflin Company, Inc. All rights reserved. 11 The inverse function is an “inverse” with respect to the operation of composition of functions. The inverse function “undoes” the function, that is, f -1 ( f (x)) = x. The function is the inverse of its inverse function, that is, f ( f -1 (x)) = x. Example: The inverse of f (x) = x 3 is f -1 (x) =. 3 f -1 ( f(x)) = = x and f ( f -1 (x)) = ( ) 3 = x Composition of Functions

12 Copyright © by Houghton Mifflin Company, Inc. All rights reserved. 12 It follows that g = f -1. Example: Verify that the function g(x) = is the inverse of f(x) = 2x – 1. Example: Composition of Functions f(g(x)) = 2g(x) – 1 = 2( ) – 1 = (x + 1) – 1 = x g( f(x)) = = = = x
