8-12.

A table can be used as a useful tool for finding some inverse functions. When the function has only one *x* in it, the function can be described with a sequence of operations, each applied to the previous result. Consider the following table for

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | |
---|---|---|---|---|

What | subtracts | multiplies by | adds |

Since the inverse must undo these operations, in the opposite order, the table for would look like the one below.

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | |
---|---|---|---|---|

What : | subtracts | divides by | adds |
