    are we finding f'(3) either way to get the inverse, let's replace f(x) with y \[y = \sqrt[3]{x-2}\] switch x and y \[x = \sqrt[3]{y-2}\] cube both sides \[x^3 = {y-2}\] \[x^3+2=y\]

    \[x^{3}+2=y^{3}\] is that right?.. i have no idea I'm so stressed

    How'd you get y^3? Remember that square roots and squares are inverse operations, right? \[(\sqrt{x})^2 = x\] \[(\sqrt[3]{x})^3 = x\]

    lol no worries, just always go over your work a bazillion times so that you can prove to yourself that your answer is right. ANYHOW, the inverse is now f(x) =x^2+2 f(3) = 3^2+2 = ??

    wait so the answer is f(x) =x^2+2 ?

    whoops./ you generally say inverse with a little dash f'(x) so the equation for the inverse is f'(x) = x^2 + 2 then you plug in 3 into the inverse equation (assuming that's the question)

    to simplify radicals you multiply by the conjugate pair which means flipping the sign

    You don't have to use what I gave you as a formula. Just distribute. Take each of the terms in the first grouping and multiply to each term in the second grouping

    \[\frac{\sqrt{3}-\sqrt{6}}{\sqrt{3}+\sqrt{6}} \cdot \frac{\sqrt{3}-\sqrt{6}}{\sqrt{3}-\sqrt{6}}\] This was the operation you were asked to perform. I was having you look at the numerator first. So looking at the numerator if we multiply the top out we would get: \[\frac{\sqrt{3} \sqrt{3}-\sqrt{3} \sqrt{6}-\sqrt{6} \sqrt{3}+\sqrt{6} \sqrt{6}}{(\sqrt{3}+\sqrt{6})(\sqrt{3}-\sqrt{6})}\]

    so basically \[\sqrt{3} \cdot \sqrt{3} =3 \text{ and } \sqrt{3} \cdot \sqrt{6}=\sqrt{18}=\sqrt{9 \cdot 2} =\sqrt{9} \cdot \sqrt{2}=3\sqrt{2}\]
