How do you find the zeroes of the 1/2x^3-x? I factoried it so it would be 1/2x(x^2)-x. The one zero would then be zero, which matches with my book's answer. But I have no idea how my book got +/- the sq. root of two for the other one. Can you demonstrate, please?

I have to find the inverse function of f(x)=3-4x. I got y=3-x/4 for the function. I then have to plug it back into the function and verify that it is the inverse. So I wrote (3-4(3-x))/4. This resulted in (-3+x)/4=x. I tried isolating it to get x=x but I just can't get it...

f(2)=5 f(-2)=1, I have to write the linear function for this. I got 5-1/2- -2=4/4=1 then I plugged it in so it would be y-5=1(x+2) which became y=x+7, then f(x)=x+7. The answer key, however, says f(x)=x+3. What did I do wrong?
