Find the inverse of g(x)=5x8
Would it be h(x)=x+8/5

scott
looks good

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

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

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

Steve
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.
