Consider the function f(x)=4 - x^2 for the domain [ 0,∞).

Find f^−1 (x), where f^−1 is the inverse of f.

Also state the domain of f^−1 in interval notation.

f^-1 (x) = ___ for the domain ___

  1. swap variables

    x = 4-y^2
    y = ±?(4-x)

    But you need to pick the branch where 4-x >= 0.

    take a look at the graph and I'm sure you can answer the questions.
