What are Inverse Functions
Let's say you have a big know in a piece of rope. How do you get rid of it? You will to do exactly the same thing with the rope which got you the knot but now in the exact opposite order. Inverse functions are the same. You have to do all the operation of the ordinary function in the exact opposite order. I will explain how to find the inverse of a function in detail in the following videos. In the first video I will discuss two strategies which you can use to find the inverse of a function. After looking at the example questions all of you will notice that finding the inverse of a function is actually a lot easier than untying a knot. Good luck!!
Congratulations! You now understand what inverse functions are and how to find the inverse of a function. Continue with your maths revision and check the link below. Here I will explain to you what composite functions are. You also need to understand composite functions if you want to pass your maths exam. I will see you there!!
