In this chapter, we will introduce two new types of functions, exponential functions and logarithmic functions. These functions are used extensively in business and the sciences as we will see. Before we introduce the functions, we need to look at another operation on functions called composition. In composition, the output of one function is the input of a second function.

We have actually used composition without using the notation many times before. When we graphed quadratic functions using translations, we were composing functions. In part a. Now in part c. When we first introduced functions, we said a function is a relation that assigns to each element in its domain exactly one element in the range.

We used the birthday example to help us understand the definition. Every person has a birthday, but no one has two birthdays and it is okay for two people to share a birthday. Since each person has exactly one birthday, that relation is a function.

A function is one-to-one if each value in the range has exactly one element in the domain. Our example of the birthday relation is not a one-to-one function. Two people can share the same birthday. The range value August 2 is the birthday of Liz and June, and so one range value has two domain values.

Therefore, the function is not one-to-one. A function is one-to-one if each value in the range corresponds to one element in the domain. For each set of ordered pairs, determine if it represents a function and, if so, if the function is one-to-one. So this relation is a function. So this function is not one-to-one.

For each set of ordered pairs, determine if it represents a function and if so, is the function one-to-one. To help us determine whether a relation is a function, we use the vertical line test. A set of points in a rectangular coordinate system is the graph of a function if every vertical line intersects the graph in at most one point.

Also, if any vertical line intersects the graph in more than one point, the graph does not represent a function. Then it is a function. To check if a function is one-to-one, we use a similar process. We use a horizontal line and check that each horizontal line intersects the graph in only one point. If every horizontal line intersects the graph of a function in at most one point, it is a one-to-one function.

This is the horizontal line test. We can test whether a graph of a relation is a function by using the vertical line test. We can then tell if the function is one-to-one by applying the horizontal line test. Since any vertical line intersects the graph in at most one point, the graph is the graph of a function. Since any horizontal line intersects the graph in at most one point, the graph is the graph of a one-to-one function.

The horizontal line shown on the graph intersects it in two points. This graph does not represent a one-to-one function. In the next example we will find the inverse of a function defined by ordered pairs. Determine the domain and range of the inverse function. See Figure We will use this concept to graph the inverse of a function in the next example. Graph, on the same coordinate system, the inverse of the one-to one function shown. We can use points on the graph to find points on the inverse graph.

Graph, on the same coordinate system, the inverse of the one-to one function. We can use this property to verify that two functions are inverses of each other. That is, they are inverses of each other. Verify that the functions are inverse functions. We have found inverses of function defined by ordered pairs and from a graph.

We will now look at how to find an inverse using an algebraic equation. Learning Objectives By the end of this section, you will be able to: Find and evaluate composite functions Determine whether a function is one-to-one Find the inverse of a function. Find and Evaluate Composite Functions Before we introduce the functions, we need to look at another operation on functions called composition.

Table Determine Whether a Function is One-to-One When we first introduced functions, we said a function is a relation that assigns to each element in its domain exactly one element in the range. Figure Solution : Step 1. Verify that the functions are inverses. Horizontal Line Test: If every horizontal line, intersects the graph of a function in at most one point, it is a one-to-one function.

Glossary one-to-one function A function is one-to-one if each value in the range has exactly one element in the domain. Step 5 : Verify that the functions are inverses. ## Inverse and Composite Functions

In this chapter, we will introduce two new types of functions, exponential functions and logarithmic functions. These functions are used extensively in business and the sciences as we will see. Before we introduce the functions, we need to look at another operation on functions called composition. In composition, the output of one function is the input of a second function. For functions f.

Notice that the ordered pairs are reversed from the original function to its inverse. Inverse functions: mapping representation: An inverse function reverses the inputs and outputs. Notice that any ordered pair on the red curve has its reversed ordered pair on the blue line. In general, given a function, how do you find its inverse function? Remember that an inverse function reverses the inputs and outputs. f 0 g and g 0 f are different functions. Composite functions are not interchangeable". (Lee, b, p. ). The inverse function is treated as a separate lesson by.

### Inverse and Composite Functions

In mathematics , an inverse function or anti-function  is a function that "reverses" another function: if the function f applied to an input x gives a result of y , then applying its inverse function g to y gives the result x , i. Thinking of this as a step-by-step procedure namely, take a number x , multiply it by 5, then subtract 7 from the result , to reverse this and get x back from some output value, say y , we would undo each step in reverse order. In this case, it means to add 7 to y , and then divide the result by 5. In functional notation , this inverse function would be given by,. Not all functions have inverse functions. Let f be a function whose domain is the set X , and whose codomain is the set Y. Then f is invertible if there exists a function g with domain Y and codomain X , with the property:.

In mathematics, it is often the case that the result of one function is evaluated by applying a second function. This sequential calculation results in 9. We can streamline this process by creating a new function defined by f g x , which is explicitly obtained by substituting g x into f x. The calculation above describes composition of functions Applying a function to the results of another function. If given functions f and g ,. The previous example shows that composition of functions is not necessarily commutative.

A case study strategy was preferred for this study because it enables the researcher to focus and have an in-depth investigation of an individual subject in a natural setting. As a data collection tool, the study used a questionnaire containing 7 vignettes comprising 4 inverse function vignettes and 3 composite function vignettes. Results suggest that vignettes might be useful in mathematical pedagogical courses in teacher education.
