**Economics 214**Lecture 6 Properties of Functions**Monotonic Functions**• Monotonic if it increasing or if it is decreasing. • Strictly monotonic if it is strictly increasing or if it is strictly decreasing. • Non-monotonic if it is strictly increasing over some interval and strictly decreasing over another interval. • Strictly monotonic functions are one-to-one functions.**One-to-One Function**• A function f(x) is one-to-one if for any two values of the argument x1 and x2, f(x1)= f(x2) implies x1=x2. • An one-to-one function ha an inverse function. • The inverse of the function y=f(x) is written y=f -1(x).**Graphing Inverse function**To graph the inverse function y=f -1(x) given the function y=f(x), we make use of the fact that for any given ordered pair (a,b) associated with a one-to-one function there is an ordered pair (b,a) associated with the inverse function. To graph y=f -1(x), we make use of the 45 line, which is the graph of the function y=x and passes through all points of the form (a,a). The graph of the function y=f -1(x), is the reflection of the graph of f(x) across the line y=x.**Common Example Inverse function**• Traditional demand function is written q=f(p), i.e. quantity is function of price. • Traditionally we graph the inverse function, p=f -1(q). • Our Traditional Demand Curve shows maximum price people with pay to receive a given quantity.
