  1. Given
    y=f(x)=(15e^x-6)/(17e^x+13)
    To find the inverse, follow the following steps:
    1. invert x and y
    x=(15e^y-6)/(17e^y+13)
    2. solve for y in terms of x
    (17x-15)e^y=-6-13x
    e^y=(6-13x)/(17x-15)
    take log on both sides:
    y = f-1(x) = ln((-6-13x)/(17x-15))
    3. check if f(f-1(x))=x
    4. plot both f(x) and f-1(x) on the same graph. They should be mirror images of each other about the y=x line.

    I leave it to you as an exercise to find the domain of f-1(x).
    The domain is the intersection of the domain of the numerator and denominator.
    In addition, for a log function, the argument to the log function must be non-negative.
