another math problem in need of help
#11386334  11/04/09 08:20 PM (8 years, 4 months ago) 


EXPONENTIAL AND LOGARITHMIC FUNCTIONS (INVERSE FUNCTIONS)
a) determine if the function is onetoone b) if the function is onetoone, find a formula for the inverse.
f(x)= (x+5)^3
i know it's onetoone, it's the formula im having trouble with. the cube is throwing me off.

This sort of algebra is really easy to think through.
You know you want to get rid of the exponent around (x+5) so you can get x by itself. So just take each side to the 1/3rd power (which is to say, take the cube root of each side). Then all you have to do is subtract the 5 of both sides, and

y=(x+5)^3 cube rootY = x+5 CuberootY  5 = X switch variables:
cuberootX  5 = Y
I think thats the inverse unless im finding something else. who knows,
