    Yes, I can. But I'm not just going to give you the answer - show your working.

    Edit: When I posted this I wasn't anticipating that others would 'join in' - I'm actually trying to help, so if you post your working I'll let you know where you're going wrong or give you some pokes in the right direction.

    Yep, but it would ruin the fun of Maths for you if I did it, wouldn't it?

    (a) f(x) = (1-x^2)^1/2 & f(x) = -((1-x^2)^1/2)
    (b) no function exists with such a property

    Your answers for (a) and (b) are correct from what I can tell. But I don't understand your solution to (c); what is g(x), for instance?

    g_1, g_2, g_3 = g_i
    g(f(x))=x

    g_1, g_2, g_3 = g_i
    g(f(x))=x
    Right, so it's a piecewise inverse to the cubic. That's right.

    Your answers all seem fine. Where were you having problems?

    how can we find y=f_i (x) =g_i^-1 (x) explicitly? & on what intervals g are one-one contained: (-infinity, -1) or (-1, 1) or (1, infinity)?
