Show that the Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion function found in Exercise 3 in Section 2.1 is invertible and that its inverse is the Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion function. 3. Analytically show that the function f (x) = x3 + 3x + 1 is one-to-one. Since finding a formula for its inverse is beyond the scope of this textbook, use Theorem 5.2 to help you compute f −1 (1), f −1 (5), and f −1 (−3). 4. With the help of your classmates, find a formula for the inverse of the following. (a) f (x) = ax + b, a = 0 √ (b) f (x) = a x − h + k, a = 0, x ≥ h (c) f (x) = (d) f (x) = ax+b cx+d , a = 0, b = 0, c = 0, d = 0 ax2 + bx + c where a = 0, x ≥ − 2ba . 2x 5. Let f (x) = x2 −1 .
