Solutions

Chapter 1.6, Problem 22E
To determine

To find: the formula for the inverse of the function f(x)=4x12x+3 .

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 22E

The formula for the inverse of the function f(x)=4x12x+3 is f1(x)=3x+12x4 .

Explanation of Solution

Let the given function as y=4x12x+3 .

Solve this equation for x as follows.

y(2x+3)=4x12xy+3y=4x12xy4x=13yx(2y4)=(3y+1)

Therefore, the value of x=3y+12y4 .

Interchange x and y and obtain the inverse function, y=3x+12x4 .

Thus, the required inverse function is f1(x)=3x+12x4 .
