    Isn't it defined as such (over the appropriate domain)?

    Every linear function has an inverse.
    Swap the x with the y and solve for y.

    Proof of what?
    Look, this is your problem.
    You should show some of your own effort.
    Do not make demands of us. That is not the way we work.

    y=mx+c sox=y-c/m swapping x and y we get y=(x-c)/m agin doing the same process we get
    y=mx+c so inverse of inverse function is the function itself

    Your basic algebra skills are in need of help.
    If x=my+c then y=\frac{x-c}{m}.
