DEVTOME.COM HOSTING COSTS HAVE BEGUN TO EXCEED 115\$ MONTHLY. THE ADMINISTRATION IS NO LONGER ABLE TO HANDLE THE COST WITHOUT ASSISTANCE DUE TO THE RISING COST. THIS HAS BEEN OCCURRING FOR ALMOST A YEAR, BUT WE HAVE BEEN HANDLING IT FROM OUR OWN POCKETS. HOWEVER, WITH LITERALLY NO DONATIONS FOR THE PAST 2+ YEARS IT HAS DEPLETED THE BUDGET IN SHORT ORDER WITH THE INCREASE IN ACTIVITY ON THE SITE IN THE PAST 6 MONTHS. OUR CPU USAGE HAS BECOME TOO HIGH TO REMAIN ON A REASONABLE COSTING PLAN THAT WE COULD MAINTAIN. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SUPPORT THE DEVTOME PROJECT AND KEEP THE SITE UP/ALIVE PLEASE DONATE (EVEN IF ITS A SATOSHI) TO OUR DEVCOIN 1M4PCuMXvpWX6LHPkBEf3LJ2z1boZv4EQa OR OUR BTC WALLET 16eqEcqfw4zHUh2znvMcmRzGVwCn7CJLxR TO ALLOW US TO AFFORD THE HOSTING.

THE DEVCOIN AND DEVTOME PROJECTS ARE BOTH VERY IMPORTANT TO THE COMMUNITY. PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO ITS FURTHER SUCCESS FOR ANOTHER 5 OR MORE YEARS!

# Inverse of a Function

### By juan taun

The inverse of a function is a function that, when given an output of the original function, returns the input. The domain and range of the original function are the range and domain of the function inverse, respectively. The domain of a function is the set of all numbers which can be inputted into the function, and the range of a function is the set of all possible outputs of the function. The function inverse is usually notated f-1.

## Finding the Inverse

To find the inverse of a function, substitute y for f(x), and solve for x. Then, replace the the isolated x with f-1(x) and replace the y with x. For example, let's find the inverse of f(x)=3x+4. First, we substitute y for f(x), resulting in y=3x+4. Second, we solve for x. We start by subtracting 4 from each site, yielding y-4=3x. Next, we divide both sides by 3, which gets us 1/3y-4/3=x. Third, we replace x with f-1(x) and replace the y's with x's, resulting in f-1(x)=1/3x-4/3.

We can test this inverse by plugging in a number for x. Let's say x is 4.

Therefore, f(4)=3(4)+4, and f(4)=16

Now, we can plug 16 into the inverse function. f-1(16)=1/3(16)-4/3

Therefore, f-1(16)=16/3-4/3, and f-1(16)=12/3=4.

Since placing the result of the function into the inverse function results in the input, we correctly derived the inverse!
