Example: Find the inverse of

y = 1-2x

1) Write the original equation.

y = 1-2x

2) Solve it in terms of x.

y = 1 -2x

-2x = -1 + y

x = (1-y)/2

3) Interchange y and x in the result of step 2.

x = (1-y)/2 ==> y = (1-x)/2

4) The inverse function f^-1(x) of f(x) = 1 -2x

is therefore f^-1(x) = (1-x)/2
