We consider the inverse function z = g(w) of a (normalized) starlike function w = f(z) of order α on the unit disk of the complex plane with 0 < α < 1. Krzyż, Libera and Złotkiewicz obtained sharp estimates of the second and the third coefficients of g(w) in their paper (1979). Prokhorov and Szynal gave sharp estimates of the fourth coefficient of g(w) as a consequence of the solution to an extremal problem in 1981. We give a straightforward proof of the estimate of the fourth coefficient of g(w) together with explicit forms of the extremal functions.
