    I thought it was 7/2x-5 but I was wrong

    -7/-2x-5? just a guess. I'm not sure.

    well I know, but -7 is the opposite of 7. There aren't any -5s in it either. That looks like a +5 up there.

    I don't think it necessarily wants the opposite of everything

    switch x and y and solve for y for the inverse of a function. \[x = \frac{ 2y+5 }{ 7}\]

    \[y = \frac{2x + 5}{7}\] To get the inverse, solve for x, then swap x and y \[y = \frac{2x + 5}{7}\] \[7y - 5 = 2x\] \[x = \frac{7y - 5}{2}\] So the inverse function is \[f^{-1}(x) = \frac{7x - 5}{2}\]
