Lehmann, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, 1 ed Section 11.1Slide 6 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Definition of an Inverse of a Function Fahrenheit/Celsius Relationship There are two key observations we can make about g −1 1. g −1 sends outputs of g to inputs of g. For example, g sends the input 0 to the output 32 and g −1 sends 32 to 0 (see Figs. 1 and 2). Using symbols, we write We say that these two statements are equivalent, which means that one statement implies the other and vice versa. Observations Continued

For example, g sends 0 to 32 and g −1 undoes this action by sending 32 back to 0. For an invertible function f, the following statements are equivalent: f (a) = b and f −1 (b) = a In words: If f sends a to b, then f −1 sends b to a. If f −1 sends b to a, then f sends a to b.

Definition of an Inverse of a Function Evaluating an Inverse Function Let f be an invertible function where f (2) = 5. Find f −1 (5). Since f sends 2 to 5, we know that f −1 sends 5 back to 2. So, f −1 (5) = 2. Some values of an invertible function f are shown in the table on the next slide. 1. Find f (3). 2. Find f −1 (9). Example Solution Example

Lehmann, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, 1 ed Section 11.1Slide 9 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. Definition of an Inverse of a Function Evaluating f and f −1 1. f (3) = 27. 2.Since f sends 2 to 9, we conclude that f −1 sends 9 back to 2. Therefore, f −1 (9)=2. The −1 in “f −1 (x)” is not an exponent. It is part of the function notation “ f −1 ”—which stands for the inverse of the function f. Here, we simplify 3 −1 and use the values of f shown in the table to find f −1 (3): Solution Warning

The blue arrows in the figure show that f sends 2 to 3. So, f (2) = 3. 2. The function f sends 4 to 5. So, f −1 sends 5 back to 4 (see the red arrows). Therefore, f −1 (5) = 4. Solution

Definition of an Inverse of a Function Finding Input-Output Values of an Inverse Function Let 1.Find five input–output values of f −1. 2.Find f −1 (8). We begin by finding input–output values of f (see the table). Since f −1 sends outputs of f to inputs of f, we conclude that f −1 sends 16 to 0, 8 to 1, 4 to 2, 2 to 3, and 1 to 4. We list these results from the smallest to the largest input in the table. Example Solution

Definition of an Inverse of a Function Finding Input-Output Values of an Inverse Function 2.From the table, we see that f −1 sends the input 8 to the output 1, so f −1 (8) = 1. If f is an invertible function, then f −1 is invertible, and f and f −1 are inverses of each other. Solution Continued Properties

Lehmann, Elementary and Intermediate Algebra, 1 ed Section 11.1Slide 22 Copyright © 2011 Pearson Education, Inc. To find an equation of f −1, we want to write t in terms of r. Here are three steps to follow to find an equation of f −1 : Step 1. We replace f (t) with r : r = 0.73t + 1.54. Step 2.

Since f sends values of t to values of r, this means that r = 8.84 when t = 10. According to the model f, the revenue will be about \$8.8 million in 2010.
