# Let f: X → Y be an invertible function. Show that f has unique inverse.(Hint: suppose g1 and g2 are two inverses of f. Then for all y ∈ Y,fog1(y) = 1Y(y) = fog2(y). Use one-one ness of f).

It is given that f: X Y be an invertible function.

Also, suppose f has two inverse

Then, for all y ϵ Y, we get:

fog1(y) = I1 (y) = fog2(y)

= > f(g1(y)) = f(g2(y))

= > g1(y) = g2(y)

= > g1 = g2

Therefore, f has a unique inverse.
