## Homework Statement

(x+2)^2(x-3) I am asked does an inverse exist for all real numbers? then I am asked can I restrict the domain and force and inverse to exist?

## Homework Equations

I said no because the function is not one-to-one when graphed.

You're given a function. Let's call it f(x) and define it to be equal to (x+2)^2(x-3)

Now you're asked to take the inverse. Do that. There is one REAL value of x for which the inverse is undefined. This should be poignantly obvious. Part two of that question will make sense once you figure out part 1.

wegnes, you say you have graphed it and know that it does not have an inverse because it is not one-to-one. Excellent! Now, on what intervals

Since the question does

Thank you! That what I wasn't doing! You are a big help, I apreciate it;o)
