Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0By the definition of inverse function, if g(x) is the inverse of f(x), then\[f(g(x))=x=g(f(x))\]To find your inverse, you set\[f(g(x))=\frac{3g(x)2}{g(x)+5}:=x\]and solve for g(x). Doing this you obtain\[g(x)=\frac{5x+2}{1x}\]It is the case that the domain of a function is equal to the range of the inverse function, and the range of the original function is equal to the domain of the inverse.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The domain of f is the set of all x for which f(x) is defined. In this case, f is defined for all real x except where x=5 (the function is not defined there since the denominator will be zero). So,\[D_f=\left\{ x \in \mathbb{R}  x \ne 5 \right\}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The range of f is equal to the domain of g. Since g is defined for all real x except x=1 (since then, the denominator is 0), you have\[D_g=\left\{ x \in \mathbb{R}  x \ne 1 \right\}=R_f\]i.e. this is the range of f.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont see 5x+2/1x options are a. 5x+2/3+x b. 5x+2/3x c. 3x+2/x5 d. x+5/3x2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The inverse function should have been\[g(x)=\frac{5x+2}{3x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Domain of f is the same as I've written above. Range of f is equal to domain of inverse, and domain of inverse is equal to all x real except x=3, so the range of f is\[R_f=\left\{ x \in \mathbb{R}x \ne 3 \right\}\]
