The problem is asking for the converse, inverse and contrapositive statments of those 2 functions. I am not familiar with this, can someone guide me as to what these mean?

As far as I know a function doesn't have an inverse, converse or contrapositive (well maybe an inverse, but I don't think that's the definition you mean). You generally find the inverse, converse and contrapositive of a conditional statement. Either tell us the statement, or give the definitions of these expressions for functions.

If the original statement were: .
