Homework Help: Finding formula for the inverse of a function

  1. Oct 11, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    2. The attempt at a solution

    i reversed x and y so i got x=e^y^2

    ln both sides to get


    so (ln(y))^(1/2)

    what am i doing wrong?

    well that last line does not follow from the one before it does it? You are trying to find y(x) remember.
