    is that \(f(x)=(\sqrt[3]x/8) -4\) ?

    \[f(x)=\sqrt[3]{\frac{ x }{ 8 }}-4\]

    oh, ok to get the inverse let y= f(x) and interchange 'x' and 'y'

    just solve for x and at the end swap x and y.

    \(y= \sqrt[3]{\dfrac{x}{8}}-4\\x= \sqrt[3]{\dfrac{y}{8}}-4\) solve for 'y' ! can you ?

    maybe start with cuping both sides?

    ADD 4 and then cube both sides :)

    no, no.... we first would need to add 4 on both sides... first do that before cubing.

    when you cube , you cube entirely, so it'll be (x+4)^3 = y/8 right ?

    remember do entirely. WHen you + / * square or cupe you do it to whole side.

    1 tip use parenthesis a+b=c+d if they tell you divide both sides by t a+b=c+d (a+b)/t=(c+d)/t use perenthesis cuzz that says do it to whole thing --- another tip If told to square both sides a+b=c+d (a+b)^2=(c+d)^2 but (a+b)^2=(c+d)^2 is not a^2+b^2=c^2+d^2 it is (a+b)*(a*b)=(c+d)*(c+d) Maybe you knew but lots of people assume or forget.
