if u have the calculator isnt the inverse buttom -1
to find the inverse of a function takes 2 steps
1. interchange the x and y variables
so y = 2x becomes x = 2y
2. Solve this new equation for y
2y = x
y = x/2
so you are correct.
for linear function of the type f(x) = mx + b
it is easy to form the inverse mentally by just "reversing" the steps and operations.
e.g. y = 3x -5
the inverse would be y = (x+5)/3
for the first, after picking any x,
we multiplied by 3 then subtracted 5
for the second, after picking any x,
we added 5 and then divided by 3
notice that not only did we perform the inverse operations, but we also performed those inverse operations in reverse order.
