Derivatives of Inverse Functions
How we can sometimes find the derivative of an inverse function without finding an explicit formula for the function?
Calculus 1- Find the Derivative of an Inverse Function
Derivative of Inverse Functions Examples & Practice Problems - Calculus
This calculus tutorial explains how to find the derivative of an inverse function.
It contains plenty of examples and practice problems for you to master the concept. it shows you how to find the inverse function f-1
(x) from f(x) and how to calculate [f-1
(x)]' in terms of x and y. It also shows you how to calculate the slope of the tangent line using the derivative. In addition, it shows you how to calculate the derivative of the inverse function using implicit differentiation - dy/dx.
Examples include polynomial and square root / radical functions.
