Directions: I will hand you a function. Walk around the room and pair up with someone. You choose a
number and plug that number into their function. Then they will give you their result and you plug that result
into your function. Do you notice anything? Now do it again but have them choose the first number. When
you find someone whose function, when composed with yours gives you an interesting result, pair up and
complete the worksheet below.

Based on the charts above, can you write the inverse of the function () = 2 + 10?

If your function takes in 3 and outputs 5, what would one input, output pair be for your partners function?

Your function intakes 2 Your function intakes Your function intakes Your function intakes
and outputs 9 5.4 and outputs 92 and outputs and outputs

following.

a. ((1)) b. ((5)) c. ((4583))
