Note that the first equation will cause x to take on all real values, because x2 – x1 is not zero. Therefore, all of the points on the line will be traced out. (b) Use the equations for x and y given in part (a) with 0 Յ t Յ1. 5 What you’ll learn about • One-to-One Functions • Inverses • Finding Inverses • Logarithmic Functions • Properties of Logarithms 37 Functions and Logarithms One-to-One Functions As you know, a function is a rule that assigns a single value in its range to each point in its domain.
