How To: Solve problems with inverse functions

In this video the instructor teaches about inverse functions. Normally in inverse functions problems you are given a function that has a set of points and you are asked to find the inverse of that function. So if the function has a point in the form (x, y) then the inverse function has its points in the form of (y, x). Now when you are given a function f(x) that is in the form of x and asked to find its inverse, equate the function to y. Solve the equation to get the value of variable x in th...

How To: Graph piecewise defined functions

In this video the instructor shows how to graph a piecewise defined function. A piecewise defined function is a function that is defined in separate pieces. In these kind of functions, for different ranges of the value of x, you are given different small functions, all of which together make the whole function. This means your equation of the function is given in the form of smaller functions. Now to graph these kind of equations all you have to do is graph the individual equations in the sam...
