College Algebra Problems With Answers sample 2 : Composite and Inverse Functions
College algebra problems and questions on composite and inverse functions are presented along with their solutions located at the bottom of the page.
Let f(x) = √(x - 4) + 3.
a) Find the
inverse of f.
b) Find the range of f^{ -1}.
Let h(x) = (x - 1) / (-x + 3).

b) Find the range of h.
Let f(x) = (x - 1)/(x + 5) and g(x) = 1/(x + 3).
a) Find the
composite function (f _{o} g)(x).
b) Find the domain of f _{o} g.
Function f is a function with inverse f^{ -1}. Function h is defined by h(x) = f(x) + k where k is a constant. Express the inverse function of h in terms of f^{ -1} and k.
Function f is a function with inverse f^{ -1}. Function h is defined by h(x) = A*f(x - h) + k where A, k and h are constants. Express the inverse function of h in terms of f^{ -1}, A, k and h.
The graphs of functions f and g are shown below.
a) Use the graph to find (f _{o} g)(-4)
