reflect the function in the line y = x to get the inverse function

if they are not necessarily functions it would mean that an inverse function does not always exist, right? :p
if f(x) and g(x) are real valued functions that are inverses of each other, then f(g(x)) = g(f(x)) = x
3) What does it mean for two functions to be inverse of each other?
switch x and y and solve for y
4) How can you use algebra to determine if an inverse function exists?
check if it is one-to-one and onto
5) How can you determine if an inverse function exists when given a graph of a function?
do you know what the inverse function does?
all this is information you could easily find by doing a web-search, by the way
