The millage rate is the amount of property tax per \$1000 of the taxable value of a home. For a certain county the millage rate is 24 mil (\$24 in tax per \$1000 of taxable value of the home). A city within the county also imposes a flat fee of \$108 per home.

a. Write a function representing the total amount of property tax T(x) (in \$) for a home with a taxable value of x thousand dollars.

b. Write an equation for T−1(x).

c. What does the inverse function represent in the context of this problem?

d. Evaluate T−1(2988) and interpret its meaning in context.

Step 1

(a) Let the amount of tax for a home with taxable value of x thousand dollars be T(x). Observe that a city within a country imposes a flat fee of \$108 per home and tax is \$24 per \$1000.

The function representing the total amount of property tax is as follows.

Step 2

(b) Obtain an equation for inverse ...
