Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok  it means the Inverse of f(x) yes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so if you have x = 1 f(x) = 1, you'll have x = 1 f^(1)(x) = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1notice how it's just switched around

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yeah you're basically replacing x and y (x,y) >(y,x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the value of f^1(3) is 1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[f^{1}(1) = 1~~~f^{1}(3) = ?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The input is the x, the output if the f^(1)(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No just look at the table :\

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's all to it, like I was explaining earlier, you're just flipping the (x,y) basically.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So what is f^(1)(8) fill out the table and see
