Professor Burger does a great job explaining how to find the inverse of a function.
At first I thought it would be very difficult to solve the inverse of a function but it turns out it is as easy as solving for y and x. He teaches how to find the inverse of functions with fractions and with negatives, he gives many different sample problems so you understand every possible way to solve an inverse of a function.

Below are the descriptions for each of the lessons included in the series:
