  1. Let .

    Solve for .

    Switch the and .

  1. Do not forget the . What will the graph of the inverse look like? Will there be exactly one output for each input?

  1. To determine if the inverse is a function: Visualize! What does a cube root graph look like?

  1. If
    Note: is the reciprocal of , not the inverse!
