Need some help with question 6iii.

I got the inverse function to be (x-1)^2

Put them equal to each other and got But then I had troubles solving that if I am doing it right?

I tried letting y = square root of x but that just gave a quartic which I dunno how to solve.

Any help would be appreciated.

It may be easiest to recall that the solution to: lies on the line 0

This is correct but, if you put y = root x you get a quartic not a quadratic
Yh that is what I wrote 0

mm I am confused. Surely I get the same thing but just y instead of x?

You should post the problem, i do not know which one from those pages is.

No, since at we have both and you can pick either of the latter two equations and solve that, which is simpler.

As joostan points out

Since you are on the line y=x

x = f(x)

or indeed

x=f^-1(x)

will be easy to solve

No worries At P what can you say about the second derivative?

Nearly, the gradient takes the maximum value, not the function, so ?

=0

So 2-2lnx= 0
2(1-ln x) =0
ln x =1
x= e

Then just sub e into (ln x)^2 for y-coordinate

and use y-y1=m(x-x1)? Is that how you do it?

Yes you'll need to sub e in to: .
to find the gradient of the tangent.

Yh got it! Thanks again 1

Does anyone mind helping me with 9ii from the same paper. I got a to be 1/2pi. But dont understand how to find x? May seem a bit daft but any help would be appreciated 0
