Example text

A, b] If g(x) = x and h(x) = sin(x), then we’d write f (x) = g(x)h(x), or f(a,=b]gh. Compare this to the composition of the two functions, j = g ◦ h, which [a, is b) given by (a, ∞) j(x) = g(h(x)) = g(sin(x)) = (sin(x))2 [a, ∞) 2 (−∞, b) different function or simply j(x) = sin (x). The function j is a completely 2 (−∞, from the product x sin(x). b} {x : a < x ≤ b} This is yet another completely different function. {x : a ≤ xThe < b}moral of the story is that products and compositions are not the same {x :thing, x ≥ a}and furthermore, the order of the functions matters when you compose {x : x them, > a} but not when you multiply them together.

Even so, to shadow deal √x better to use the piecewise definition than to write as x02 . Sameitheight 1 the graph of a Finally, let’s take a look at some graphs. If you know what 4 function looks like, you can get the graph of the absolute value −x−2 of that function by reflecting everything below the x-axis up to above the x-axis, using the Same length, 3 x-axis as your mirror. For example, here’s theopposite graph of y −3 = |x|, which comes signs from reflecting the bottom portion of y = x in theg(x) yx-axis: = −2x = x2 −2x3 f (x) = y= |x| g(x) =1x2 y = 12 x − 1 3 f (x) = x 2x) mirror (y =√ −1 −1 f (x) = x3 x = h(x) 2 yy = x y = 10 −1 ymirror = h −x (x) (x-axis) y (x = 2− 1)2 y= y = log2 (x) −1 4 x units Same3 height −x Same length, signs of the graph of How about the graph of y = |log2 (x)|?

For example, if f (x) = x3 , then f has an inverse given by f −1 (x) = 3 x, √ 3 and so f −1 (f (x)) = x3 = x for any x. Remember, the inverse function is like an undo button. We use x as an input to f , and then give the output to f −1 ; this undoes the transformation and gives us back x, the original number. √ Similarly, f (f −1 (y)) = ( 3 y)3 = y. So f −1 is the inverse function of f , and f is the inverse function of f −1 . In other words, the inverse of the inverse is the original function.
