Solutions

Chapter 2.7, Problem 29E
To determine

To prove f and g are inverse of each other

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 29E

By the property of inverse functions f and g are inverse of each other

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

  f(x)=1x and g(x)=1x

Calculation:

Now:

  g(f(x))=g(1x)g(f(x))=11xg(f(x))=x

  f(g(x))=f(1x)f(g(x))=11xf(g(x))=x

So by property of inverse functions f and g are inverses of each other.

These equations when composed cancel each other
