Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0f and g are inverses if operating on one with the other yields x. That is, if f and g are inverses of each other, then\[f(g(x))=x\] and \[g(f(x))=x\]Without restriction, they're not inverses of each other. If they were inverses, they would be mirror images of each other about the line y=x...they're not.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Inverses are known as "onetoone" functions. g(x)=x^2 is not a onetoone function. For example: x^2=9, x=3 AND x=3. In order for g(x) to have in inverse, we have to restrict its domain to either only positive values of x, or only negative values of x.
