Here is my solution to question 4. The rest I will leave for others.

How would u solve:

d) ln x + ln (x-3) = 0

e) e^x + e^-x = 2

f) ln 2 + ln x = 4

the inverse function of 3+ln(4-x)?

d) ln x + ln (x-3) = 0

e) e^x + e^-x = 2

f) ln 2 + ln x = 4

the inverse function of 3+ln(4-x)?

Here is solution for (d)

thanks! what about the inverse function one?

Here is my solution but I know it is wrong. Can someone tell me my mistake?

I know it is wrong because the graph is not symmetrical about the line y=x

Edit: Solution is correct, graph had the wrong scale to show symmetry

See pic 9

Bye

You expect us to do your homework for u! No point in copying out the questions and posting them!

Try to understand them and finding the solutions yourself!

Try to understand them and finding the solutions yourself!

I totally agree - you learn more by struggling with a question for half an hour (even with small hints) (and reading back over the theory) than you do by getting a solution and thinking 'oh yes I get it now'.
