**Inverse** \In*verse"\, adjective [L. inversus, p. p. of invertere: cf. F.
**inverse**. See {Invert}.]

1. Opposite in order, relation, or effect; reversed; inverted; reciprocal; -- opposed to {direct}.

2. (Bot.) Inverted; having a position or mode of attachment the reverse of that which is usual.

3. (Math.) Opposite in nature and effect; -- said with
reference to any two operations, which, when both are
performed in succession upon any quantity, reproduce that
quantity; as, multiplication is the **inverse** operation to
division. The symbol of an **inverse** operation is the symbol
of the direct operation with -1 as an index. Thus sin-1 x
means the arc or angle whose sine is x.

{**Inverse** figures} (Geom.), two figures, such that each point
of either figure is **inverse** to a corresponding point in
the order figure.

{**Inverse** points} (Geom.), two points lying on a line drawn

center of the circle or sphere is equal to the square of
the radius.

{**Inverse** ratio}, or {Reciprocal ratio} (Math.), the ratio of
the reciprocals of two quantities.

{**Inverse** proportion}, or {Reciprocal proportion}, an equality
between a direct ratio and a reciprocal ratio; thus, 4 : 2
: : 1/3 : 1/6, or 4 : 2 : : 3 : 6, inversely.

Thus the course of human study is the **inverse** of the
