A function has an inverse if and only if no horizontal line intersects its graph of the function in at most one point.

Graph :

Graph  the function .

Draw the horizontal line .

Observe the graph:

The horizontal line touches the graph of the function at only one point.

The function is an one-to-one, because it  passes the horizontal line test.

Therefore the inverse of the function exist.

To find the inverse of the function, consider and solve in terms of .

Now interchange and .

Replace .

The inverse of is .

(b).

The inverse of the function is .
