Unformatted text preview: Project 3 MAC 2311 1. For a function f and number a , how is solving the equation f ( x ) = a related to finding f 1 ( a ) ; what is the important difference (consider sin( x ) )? What property must the function have? 2. Examine the function f ( x ) = x 2 + √ x . What equation must hold in order for 15 to be in the range of f ? How is this question related to the intersection of the graph of √ x with the parabola 15 x 2 ? Consider the intersection of the graph of √ x with parabolas of the form A x 2 . Use them to convince yourself that f ( x ) is onetoone and that 15 is in the range of f . What seems to be the range of f ? What does this tell you about the domain of f 1 ? Is it easy to write the inverse function f 1 ( x ) ? Compute f 1 (2) and f 1 (18) nonetheless. Using trial and error with a calculator, find a number that is very close to being f 1 (15) . 2. Solve the logarithmic equations. Why does one yield a false solution?...
