i can figure this out
-2+|-5+6|

i try inverse but im still getting it wrong ive been stuck on this fo awhile


There is no inverse in the equation.
the |...| means absolute value. We perform what is indicated in the |,,| and that is +1. The absolute value of this is 1 (if the answer had been -1 the absolute value still is 1). Then
-2+(+1) = -1. The absolute value of anything is the value of the number ignoring the sign.

  1. Anything in an absolute value will become positive after computing, or alone
    ==> |-6|=6
    ==>|-6+4|=|-2|=2
    so then...
    -2+|-5+6|= -2+1 = -1
    Your answer is -1

    The following function is one-to-one; find its inverse f(x)=x^3+5 I know that the first step would be to set y = to x so I did y=x^3+5 Then you swap x with y so x=y^3+5. Then you solve for y and this is where I think i messed up.
