I know you solve it with composite functions f(g(x)) and g(f(x)), and I solved f(g(x)), but I can't seem to solve g(f(x)) to equal x, like it should. Can someone show me how to solve this? Thanks :)

**jim**, Saturday, October 24, 2009 at 9:08pmYou probably took a wrong turn in what was included inside the fourth root. Easy turn to miss. :-)

f(x)=(3/4)x^4

g(x)= ((108((3/4)x^4 + 2)-216)^(1/4))/3

= ((81x^4 + 216 -216)^1/4) /3

= ((81x^4)^1/4) /3

= 81^(1/4)x^(1/4) /3

= 3 x / 3

= x
