Homework Help: When does g^(-1) f exist

  1. Apr 6, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    What is the condition for the function g^(-1)f to exist ?

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    i know for function gf to exist , the range of f must be a subset or equal to the domain of g . Does it also work for g^(-1)f ? what is the logic behind that ?

    Do you know which types of relationships are considered functions?

    Re: fucntion

    yes , one to one relationships or many to one for functions and one to one only for inverse function
