Oh okay that makes sense, Im just sort of still confused with how the answer to the first one needs to be layed out I got y = ³√(1/5x) +3 And yes that is a new equation on my second post, and yeah I meant that, sorry will remember to put brackets next time.

I also do not get these inverses questions y = 5(x-3)^3 x = 5(y-33)^3 I divided 5 on both sides and got 1/5x = (y-3)^3 Then do I cube root the 1/5x or something to get rid of of the cubed on (y-3)? Also y = x-2/5x-3

For the second step, to get rid of a fraction on the bottom, we always multiply it with every term? And if we are dividing something, then we divide it by every term? K i get how you got 6, but I still dont get how to get the x+4 ?
