1-1 function

1-1 function

A function is 1-1 if its inverse is also a function.
1:1 function

1:1 function

A function is 1:1 if its inverse is also a function.
Horizontal Line Test

Horizontal Line Test

The horizontal line test says that if a horizontal line drawn anywhere through the graph of a function intersects the function in more than one location, then the function is not one-to-one and not invertible.
inverse

inverse

Inverse functions are functions that 'undo' each other. Formally: f(x) and g(x) are inverse functions if f(g(x)) = g(f(x)) = x.
inverse function

Inverse functions are functions that 'undo' each other. Formally f(x) and g(x) are inverse functions if f(g(x)) = g(f(x)) = x.
invertible
