Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the answer is inversef(x)=4+sqrt{x+12} . domain is x bigger or equal 12 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to be more precise, \(f^{1}(x)=4\pm \sqrt{x+12} \) the domain \(x \ge 12 \) is correct.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait, its given that x<4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so, it'll be only \(f^{1}(x)=4  \sqrt{x+12}\) with same domain.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how can we understand that it is minus when x<4 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.14+ anything means >4 4 anything means <4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1does that clear it up ? or you have different doubt altogether ? :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a little bit :D because it tells about x but we take the function <4 :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1oh, .... domain of f(x) means range of its inverse function \(f^{1}(x)\) here, x<4 is domain of f(x), so range of \(f^{1}(x)\) is x<4 , means \(f^{1}(x)\) has least value of 4, so we discard 4+sqrt {x+12} because that will be >4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1***range of \(f^{1}(x)\) is \(f^{1}(x)\)<4
