# How To: Solve problems with inverse functions

In this video the instructor teaches about inverse functions. Normally in inverse functions problems you are given a function that has a set of points and you are asked to find the inverse of that function. So if the function has a point in the form (x, y) then the inverse function has its points in the form of (y, x). Now when you are given a function f(x) that is in the form of x and asked to find its inverse, equate the function to y. Solve the equation to get the value of variable x in the form of y. Now replace the y with x in the value and this gives the inverse function of the original function. This video shows how to compute inverse functions.
