Alright, I'm just going through my older tests in preparation for my upcoming exams and I have come across a question regarding exponents and inverses.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The original equation is:

[itex] h(x) = 3(4^{(x-1)})+2 [/itex]

and I must find the inverse in order to proceed with the rest of the question.

2. Relevant equations

Now I know the basic stuff of Logs, Natural Logarithms and Exponents such as the basic rules:

Change of Base

Product

Quotient

Power

and I can do the other questions on the test but it is this one question with the additional constants that is throwing my mathematical abilities out of the window:yuck:

If someone could just give me some guidance on how to approach this problem I would be eternally grateful.
