    Why? If you finish early it's probably better to check your answers than do your make-up.

    lol. No. I meant using it if we need to draw the graph of f^-1(x). You reflect over line y=x so i thought if you were allowed a mirror you could double check it.

    Well, since the P2 paper is the only one to allow graphing calculators (I think: do not trust my memory of rubric!) I don't see why they'd object to a mirror being used for the same purpose.

    I wouldn't risk doing anything funny in an exam though. It might be best just to practise visualising the reflection.

    I'm almost certain such a thing wouldn't be allowed.
