(a) (b) If every horizontal line intersects the graph of a function at no more than one point, then the function is one-to-one. Not one-to-one One-to-one

Slide 5-8 5.1 Finding an Equation for the Inverse Function Notation for the inverse function f -1 is read “f-inverse” Finding the Equation of the Inverse of y = f(x) 1. Interchange x and y. 2. Solve for y. 3. Replace y with f -1 (x). Any restrictions on x and y should be considered.

If the point (a,b) is on the graph of f, then the point (b,a) is on the graph of f -1. If a function is one-to-one, the graph of its inverse f -1 (x) is a reflection of the graph of f across the line y = x.

Slide 5-11 5.1 Finding the Inverse of a Function with a Restricted Domain ExampleLet SolutionNotice that the domain of f is restricted to [–5,  ), and its range is [0,  ). It is one-to-one and thus has an inverse. The range of f is the domain of f -1, so its inverse is

Slide 5-12 5.1 Important Facts About Inverses 1.If f is one-to-one, then f -1 exists. 2.The domain of f is the range of f -1, and the range of f is the domain of f -1. 3.If the point (a,b) is on the graph of f, then the point (b,a) is on the graph of f -1, so the graphs of f and f -1 are reflections of each other across the line y = x.

Slide 5-13 5.1 Application of Inverse Functions Example Use the one-to-one function f (x) = 3x + 1 and the numerical values in the table to code the message BE VERY CAREFUL.
