Find the inverse of g(x)=5x-8

Would it be h(x)=x+8/5

  • algebra 2 -

    looks good

  • algebra 2 -

    But when I checked online it said g^-1(x)=x+8/5

  • algebra 2 -

    g^-1 is notation for "inverse of g" ... is the name important?

  • algebra 2 -

    so it's fine if i put h(x)

  • algebra 2 -

    dunno - as scott asked: is the name important?

    Unless you explain what h(x) is, it bears no relevance to the question.
    If you say that h(x) = g^-1(x) then it should be fine.
    But, that's even more work than just saying that g^-1(x) = x+8/5.

    In fact, I'd just put x+8/5 since it is clear what they are asking for, not its name.
