4.3 Use Inverse Functions Example 3 Find the inverse of a quadratic function Find the inverse of Then graph f and f – 1. The domain of f is restricted to negative values of x. So, the range of f must be restricted to negative values, and therefore the inverse is f 1 ( x ) = ______. (If the domain were restricted to x > 0, you would choose f 1 ( x ) = ______. )
