Hi,jamesbond007 said:given that f(x)=x³+3x+6

The notation f^-1'(x) represents the inverse derivative of the function f(x). In other words, we are trying to find the value of x that gives a derivative of 2 for the inverse of the function f(x).
To find the inverse of a function, we switch the x and y variables and solve for y. This will give us the inverse function, which can then be used to find the inverse derivative.
The process for finding the inverse derivative involves first finding the inverse of the function, then taking the derivative of the inverse function using the chain rule. Finally, we plug in the given value for the derivative and solve for x.
Sure, for the function f(x) = x^2, the inverse function is f^-1(x) = √x. To find the inverse derivative at a point, say f^-1'(4), we first take the derivative of √x, which is 1/(2√x). Plugging in the given value of 4, we get f^-1'(4) = 1/(2√4) = 1/4. Therefore, the value of x for which the inverse derivative of f(x) equals 4 is 1/4.
Yes, there is a specific method for solving for x in this type of problem. After finding the inverse function and taking its derivative, we set the derivative equal to the given value and solve for x. This will give us the value of x that corresponds to the given derivative of the inverse function.
