3.) f(x)= 2x-5 for this one I have

y= (x+5)/2 is this correct?

4.) g(x)= (x+5)^3

I am stuck on this one.

**Reiny**, Sunday, November 30, 2008 at 9:45pm3 is good

4:

let y = (x+5)^2

interchange x with y

x = (y+5)^2

+-sqrt(x) = y+5

y = -5 +-sqrt(x) or f(x) = -5 +-sqrt(x)

**Shawn**, Sunday, November 30, 2008 at 9:51pmHi Reiny,

I just have one question for 4.) the problem is g(x)= (x+5)^3

how were you able to convert the equation to the following?

let y = (x+5)^2

interchange x with y

x = (y+5)^2

**Reiny**, Monday, December 1, 2008 at 12:34ammy error, did not read the question carefully enough, thought it was squared instead of cubed.

so just change the sqrt to cube root and use only the positive sign.

so last line should be

y = -5 +-cuberoot(x)
