Inverse of a Quadratic Function A horizontal line can intersect the graph of 𝑓 𝑥 = 𝑥 2 in two points, i.e.,f (-2) = f (2). Thus, a vertical line can intersect the graph of 𝑓 −1 in two points. 𝑓 −1 is not a function because it fails the vertical line test. Restrict the domain of f so that the inverse of the restricted function is a function.
