I'm looking to find the inverse function of f(n)= x^2 - x
the fact that x is raised to the power is confusing me.
thanks in advance for some help!
The inverse is given by $\displaystyle y = f^{-1}(x)$ where $\displaystyle x = y^2 - y$.
Your job now is to make y the subject. You have several options:
Option 1: First complete the square.
Option 2: Solve for y using the quadratic formula.
You have misread the equation.
