Inverse Function Calculator

Online Tutoring Is The Easiest, Most Cost-Effective Way For Students To Get The Help They Need Whenever They Need It.

Inverse function is the reciprocal of the given function. If f(x) is the given function and g(x) is the inverse of the function then g(f(x)) = x. To find the inverse of a function, we switch places of the variable and then solve the function. The Inverse function calculator is the instant online tool used to find the inverse of a given function.

Example 1: Find the inverse of the function f(x) = x2 + 5.

Given is an equation f(x) = x2 + 5.

To find the inverse of y = x2 + 5  Switch ‘x’ and ’y’ places  x = y2 + 5

Solve for y  Subtract 5 on both sides of the equation   x - 5 = y2

Now square root the equation on both sides   y =± √(x - 5)

Therefore f(x)-1 is written as f(x)-1 =± √(x - 5)

Example 2: Find the inverse of the function f(x) = 4x2 – 7.

Given is an equation f(x) = 4x2 - 7.

To find the inverse y = 4x2 – 7  Switch ‘x’ and ’y’ places  x = 4y2 - 7

Solve for y  Add 7 on both sides  x + 7 = 4y2

Now square root the equation on both sides and divide by 2.

2y/2 =± [√(x + 7)]/2

Therefore f(x)-1 is written as:  f(x)-1 =± [√(x + 7)]/2
