    Exclamation conjectures .. about functions

    I'm fairly lost. I understand what the question is asking me, but I don't know where to go from there.

    Here it is.

    Make a conjecture with respect to the point of intersection between a function and its inverse. Verify your conjecture using

    a. a linear function
    b. a quadratic function
    c. a radical function and its inverse


    I'd appreciate it a bunch if you could help me understand this. =)

    Thanks. Katt.

    [I]Make a conjecture with respect to the point of intersection between a function and its inverse. Verify your conjecture using

    a. a linear function
    And function, a not equal to zero,
    y=ax+b ---> linear has a inverse.
    The explanation is simple, since you have a non-horizontal line the horizontal line test only intersects once so it has an inverse.

    b. a quadratic function
    No consider y=x^2
    c. a radical function and its inverse
    No consider y=1/x^2
