Maximal domain of g(x)...
g(x) = (3) - (4/(x+2))
Is it x + 2 = 0..
x = - 2...
Is that how we get the maximal domain??

The maximal domain is the set of all x that allows your function to exist.

- anonymous

So here, your function is not defined at the point x=-2 since there, the denominator is 0.

- anonymous

so it can't equal to zero because it's over something

oh okay thanks

- anonymous

So your domain is the set of all x real except for x=0.

- anonymous

i think real, as long as X not equal to 0

- anonymous

x+2 not equal to zero

- anonymous

so is the answer...? R / -2 ?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

\[\mathbb{R} - \left\{ -2 \right\}\]

- anonymous

Thanks :)

- anonymous

np

- anonymous

Also what is it's range? + it wants the inverse...

- anonymous

is the range infinity to 3 ?

- anonymous

negative infinity?

- anonymous

u want this (-infinity,2),( 2, infinity)? but i never see a form like that, u just write R-{-2}

- anonymous

Okay, do you know how to get the inverse?

- anonymous

You can use the definition for the inverse.
g is the inverse of f if
\[f(g(x))=x=g(f(x))\]

- anonymous

The inverse of your function can be found then as,\[f(g(x))=3-\frac{4}{g(x)+2}=x\]and solve for g(x).

- anonymous

do we put the w hole g(x) under that 4 ?

- anonymous

?

- anonymous

oh sorry.. do we re arrange the g(x) to the other side or something?

- anonymous

yeah, you solve for g(x)

- anonymous

4 = x (g(x)+2)

- anonymous

where'd you 3 go?

- anonymous

oh lol, -1 = x (g(x) + 2)

- anonymous

\[3-\frac{4}{g(x)+2}=x \rightarrow g(x)=\frac{4}{3-x}-2\]

- anonymous

check, i'm being distracted by different people

- anonymous

g(x) = 3- 4/x+2.... and inverse is 3 - 4/g(x) +2... can you just leave it like that?

- anonymous

y = 3- (4/x+2)
x = 3-(4/y+2)
and then simplify

- anonymous

Take your original function.
Put g(x) in place of x and replace f(x) with x
Solve (rearrange) so you have g(x) = blah blah

- anonymous

how to simplify after... -1 = x(g(x) + 2) ?

- anonymous

expand

- anonymous

x(g(x)+2) = xg(x) + 2x

- anonymous

subtract 2x from both sides

- anonymous

divide by x

- anonymous

but i think you've made a mistake

- anonymous

I'll write it out

- anonymous

it wants the inverse g^-1... of g(x) = (3) - (4/(x+2))

- anonymous

y = 3- (4/x+2)
x = 3-(4/y+2)
x(y+2) = 3-4
x(y+2)=-1
y+2 = -1/x
y = (-1/x) -2
can this make sense?

- anonymous

Yeah, same thing, different notation.

- anonymous

yeah it makes sense except the G^-1.... the inverse... it looks different.

- anonymous

y = g^-1(x)

- anonymous

I stuffed the g(x) calc. because I'm writing it out on this damn thing, but the procedure is correct

- anonymous

=) Okay so should I just replace the y's with g(x).. as the answer?

- anonymous

You should end up with\[g^{-1}(x)=2\frac{x-1}{3-x}\]

- anonymous

no no ... don't just replace the y's with g(x)...
Do what I said...
Take your original function.
Put g^-1(x) in place of x and replace f(x) with x
Solve (rearrange) so you have g(x) = blah blah

- anonymous

it looks difficult to do but okay :)

- anonymous

You know what, there's a lot of confusion here. I'm going to write it out and scan.

- anonymous

Thanks :D :D :D I'll wait

- anonymous

Lokisan are you still there?

- anonymous

yes

- anonymous

scanning

- anonymous

Ok alright

Ive reformatted my pc so ill down pdf reader now, thanks for the link.

- anonymous

ok

- anonymous

Lokisan, did you use the retro version of this site?

- anonymous

?

- anonymous

retro

- anonymous

Yes, there was another version to this site

- anonymous

That means you joined it after the changes have taken place

- anonymous

Well, I think the retro was better, as you could type there realtime

- anonymous

I mean, it was more like a black board, and we didn't have to wait for the whole typing to be over

- anonymous

oh

- anonymous

Further more we could erase typed things and we could also type inbetween others' typings

- anonymous

yeah, this is a pain, and i can't use this site on my phone - not practical

- anonymous

oh that's heaps better
