Given f(x)=2x^37 find f^1(x) and then find f^1(2)
I though that this meant inverse function.
x=2y^37
x+7=2y^3
(x+7)/2=y^3
((x+7)/2)^(1/3)=y
so this meant f^1(2) = 1.35721
The professor posted the answer as being 6. I'm not sure if I misunderstood the question or if I'm completely off in my answer.
Any ideas?
thanks
