Since referring you to the related questions seems to do no good, here it is again: f(x) = cx/(2x+3) f(f) = cf/(2f+3) = c[cx/(2x+3)]/(2[cx/(2x+3)]+3) = c^2x/(2(c+3)x+9) So, if c^2x/(2(c+3)x+9) = x, c^2x = 2(c+3)x^2 + 9x 2(c+3)x^2 + (9-c^2)x = 0 x(2c+6+9-c^2) = 0 x(15+2c-c^2...

f(x) = cx/(2x+3) f(f) = cf/(2f+3) = c[cx/(2x+3)]/(2[cx/(2x+3)]+3) = c^2x/(2(c+3)x+9) So, if c^2x/(2(c+3)x+9) = x, c^2x = 2(c+3)x^2 + 9x 2(c+3)x^2 + (9-c^2)x = 0 x(2c+6+9-c^2) = 0 x(15+2c-c^2) = 0 x(5c-1)(3c+1) = 0 So, c = 1/5 or c = -1/3

since g(x) is a parabola, there are two values of x for every value of g. So, there is no inverse. However, if you pick a single branch of the parabola (that is, you restrict the domain), there is an inverse.

clearly there is an x-intercept somewhere just beyond 6. See how the height is descending. Since the given h values do not show an obvious symmetry, it is not immediately clear where the vertex is. However, since h(0) = 0, if h(t) = at^2 + bt + c c = 0, so h(t) = at^2 + bt ...
