## A little inverse help cube root

find the inverse of f(x)=3sqrt(x+2) -7 x>=-2

I got this far (x+7)=3sqrt(y+2)

I dont know how to get rid of the cube root someone help plz

just cube both sides of the equation....

 therefore is the inverse of my equation f^-1(x)=(x+7)^(3)-2 ?

## A little inverse help cube root

Yup.....................

 it doesnt look anything like the inverse when plugged into the graphing calculator into y= and compared to DrawInv
 I tried again now my answer is [(x+7)^3] -2 _________ 27 Is this correct? OR totally wrong?
 Is that 3 * cube root of (x + 2) or just cube root of (x + 2)??

This is really curious.She's posted 196 times,yet she hasn't had the time to learn how to edit the formulas in 'tex'.
$$f_{1}(x)=\sqrt[3]{x+2}-7$$
,then the inverse is found simply:
$$f_{1}^{-1}(x)=(x+7)^{3}-2$$.
$$f_{2}(x)=3\sqrt[3]{x+2}-7$$
,then the inverse is easily found to be
$$f_{2}^{-1}(x)=\frac{(x+7)^{3}}{27}-2$$
The curious part is that i don't have any idea "which is which",as you posted both answers as 'correct'.Obviously only one is.
In the end i'd like to ask you in a very polite way to sacrifice some of your spare time and read the .pdf document which explains you how you can edit your mathematical formulas in 'tex'.

PS.Isn't it a little weird to you as well that on Christmas Evening you chose mathematics as a 'date'??

It makes it look like you don't know the difference between "cube root" and "square root". Even if you refuse to use $^3\sqrt{x}$ or 3√(x), you could at least write "cbrt(x)" or "3rdrt(x)".
 Ur right I really dont have time to read the txt, but when I do have I time I will for sure. The question is 3 * the square root of (x+2) subtract 7 (7 is not under the square root). And yes I do know the difference between cube root and square root. I got the previous answer because I was told to cube both sides of the equation to get rid of the square root, but I think I was supposed to square both sides of the equation to get rid of the square root. So is the answer (x+7)^(2) -2 --------- 9

One request,though,pleeaeaeaeaeaeaeaeaeaeaeaeaeaeeaeaeaeaeeaeaeaeaeaeaserea d that file which explains the tex editing language.U might be able to have an adjustable fraction line,not a bunch of minuses...
