Parent functions are the most basic, or "simplest" form of a given function with no transformations placed upon them.
For example, `y=4x^2+2x+5`
is a quadratic function. The parent is:
`y=x^2`
The inverse graph is the graph that results from switching the (x,y) coordinates of the function. Inverse graphs are graphs the are reflections across the y= x line.
The graphs above are inverses of each other.
