9-12.
  1. A table can be used as a useful tool for finding some inverse functions. When the function has only one x in it, the function can be described with a sequence of operations, each applied to the previous result. Consider the following table for. Homework Help ✎

    1st

    2nd

    3rd

    4th

    What f does to x:

    subtracts 1

    square root symbol

    multiplies by 2

    adds 3


    Since the inverse must undo these operations, in the opposite order, the table for f 1(x) would look like the one below.

    1st

    2nd

    3rd

    4th

    What does f -1 to x:

    subtracts 3

    divides by 2

    ()2

    adds 1

    1. Copy and complete the following table for g1(x) if

      ( )2

      divides by 3

      subtracts 2

      What g1 does to x:

    2. Write the equations for f −1(x) and g1(x).

Look at the table above.
