Outcomes

MGSE9-12.F.BF.4

Find inverse functions.

MGSE9-12.F.BF.4a

Solve an equation of the form f(x) = c for a simple function f that has an inverse and write an expression for the inverse. For example, f(x) =2(x^3) or f(x) = (x+1)/(x-1) for x â‰ 1.

MGSE9-12.F.BF.4b

Verify by composition that one function is the inverse of another.

MGSE9-12.F.BF.4c

Read values of an inverse function from a graph or a table, given that the function has an inverse.
