    Hello darshanpatel. Welcome to PF.

    What is y ?? (Your answer makes no sense.)

    Here's a hint: If [itex]\displaystyle f^{-1}(7)=1\,,[/itex] then what is [itex]\displaystyle f(1)\,?[/itex]

    Note: When a moderator of these forums sees the size of that image, he/she will likely delete it.

    The y is from exchanging the x and y's to get the inverse, also can you please help me and not hint lol.

    LOL indeed!

    Read the rules of these Forums.

    By the way: The hint I gave should lead you directly to the solution.

    If it is much larger than 800 x 600 pixels, the moderators will likely delete it.
