    domain: you can only take the log of a positive number, so start with \(x+2>0\) and solve for \(x) in one step

    for the inverse, set \[x=\ln(y+2)-3\] and solve for \(y\)

    this takes three steps \[x=\ln(y+2)-3\] \[x+3=\ln(y+2)\] \[e^{x+3}=y+2\] \[y=e^{x+3}-2\]

    Hey satellite, just out of curiosity, what do you do for a living? Sorry to barge in here, but you don't accept messages from non-fans apparently

    but using an ln graph, anything less than ln(1) is undefined....
