Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is that the inverse? (sorry I took a minute to reply)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0take your graph, and reflect it about the line \(y=x\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is that diagonal? Like instead of reflecting across the x or y axis directly?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here is a graph that looks something like your function http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=1%2Fx%2B5+domain+5..5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To get the inverse of the graph, would I flip 1/x to just x + 5?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0inverse does not mean "reciprocal" that is for numbers inverse means inverse function

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if \(f(x)=\frac{1}{x}+5\) that means a) take the reciprocal b) add 5 inverse is a) subtract 5 b) take the reciprocal i.e. \(f^{1}(x)=\frac{1}{x5}\)
