F(x) = 1-x and g(x) = 1/x

These functions have the property that f = f^-1(inverse) and g = g ^-1. That is, the inverse of f is equal to itself and the inverse of g is also equal to itself. Take the composition of each function with itself to show that this is true. Remember, if the function h(x) is equal to its own inverse, then h o h^-1 = x.

5. Calculus (Derivatives of Inverse Functions)

Suppose f(x) = sin(pi cos(x)). On any interval where the inverse function y = f^-1(x) exists, the derivative of f^-1(x) with respect to x is: I've come as far as y = arccos ((arcsin(x))/pi), but I am not certain this is right.
