Rebecca thinks that she has found a quick way to graph an inverse of a function. She figures that if you can interchange and to find the inverse, she will interchange the - and -axes by flipping the paper over so that when she looks through the back the -axis is vertical and the y-axis is horizontal as shown in the pair of graphs below left. Copy the graph below onto your paper and try her technique. Does it work? If so, do you like this method? Why or why not?

Rebecca's method should be successful.
