Find the inverse of the following function:
f(x) = 3x + 12
I don't think I worked this problem off correctly...I am suppose to find the inverse of the function
Is this the correct way to work this problem?
y= 3x + 12
x= 3y + 12
3y = x  12
f1(x) = x  12/3

Anna,
You would divide everything by 3 leaving you with f1(x)= x/3  4

ashwni kumar,
see the correct and easy way is like this :
y=3x +12
now get x in terms of y
3x =y12
or x= (y12)/3
now replace x with y and vice versa
so you will get :
y= (x12)/3
or f1(x)= x/3  4
this should be the answer
