Derivative of Inverse Functions Examples & Practice Problems – Calculus

This calculus video 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.
