C3 Mathematics Edexcel January 2011 Question 6

6. The function f is defined by
f: x ↦ (3 - 2x)/(x - 5), x ∈ ℝ, x ≠ 5

(a) Find f-1(x)

The function g has domain –1 ≤ x ≤ 8, and is linear from (–1, –9) to (2, 0) and from

(2, 0) to (8, 4). Figure 2 shows a sketch of the graph of y = g(x).

(b) Write down the range of g.

(c) Find gg(2).

(d) Find fg(8).

(e) On separate diagrams, sketch the graph with equation

(i) y = |g(x)| ,

(ii) y = g-1(x)

Show on each sketch the coordinates of each point at which the graph meets or cuts the axes.

(f) State the domain of the inverse function g-1.
