Where the f to the negative one denote the pre-image or inverse image.

I think by comparing the inverse images of two subsets in a function we might be comparing if they are equivalent, but not sure.

This comes from the Basic Structures: Sets, Functions, Sequences, and Sums from Sequences and Summations chapter.

Thanks!
