1 )  f(x)=3x+9

Let f(x)= 3x+9 = y

f(x) = y and 3x+9 = y

x = ƒ−1(y) -------------> (1)

3x + 9 = y

Subtract 9 from each side

3x = y - 9

x = (y - 9) / 3 ----------->(2)

From (1) and (2)

ƒ−1(y) = (y - 9) / 3

Substitute with y by x

ƒ−1(x) = (x - 9) / 3

ƒ−1(x) = (1/3)x - 3

The option A is the right choice

4)Given functions are f(x)=4x-2 and g(x)=x+1

(f · g)(x) = [(4x-2)(x+1)]

= [(4x)(x+1) - (2)(x+1)]

= [(4x^2+4x) - (2x+2)]

=  [(4x^2+4x-2x-2)]

(f · g)(x)=  [(4x^2+2x-2)]

The option A is correct.

2) f(x ) = 3 / x  and g(x ) = 3x.

A: (f · g)(2)

= f(2) * g(2)

= (3/2) * 3(2)

= (3/2) * 6

=

Therefore (f · g)(2) ≠  2.

B: (g· f)(2)

= g(2) * f(2)

= (3/2) * 3(2)

= 9

Therefore  (g· f)(2) ≠ 0.

C: (f · g)(9 )

= f(9) * g(9)

= (3/9) * 3(9)

= (1/3) * 27

=

Therefore (f · g)(9) ≠  1

D: (g· f)(-9)

= g(-9) * f(9)

= (3/-9) * 3(-9)

= (-1/3) * -27

= 9

Therefore (g· f)(-9) ≠ -1

None of them is True.

3) Let the inverse functions be f(x ) = x2 and g(x ) = √ x.

A: f(x ) / g(x )

= x2 / √ x

= x3/2

Therefore f(x ) / g(x ) ≠  1.

Therefore the statement is False.

B: f(x )  ≟  -g(x )

x2   ≟  - √ x

x2  ≠ - √ x

Therefore f(x )  ≠  -g(x ).

Therefore the statement is False.

C: (f · g)(x )

= f(x ) * g(x )

= x2 * √ x

= x5/2

Therefore (f · g)(x ) ≠  1.

Therefore the statement is False.

D: (g· f)(x )

= g(x ) * f(x )

= x * x2

= x5/2

Therefore (g· f)(-9) ≠ x.

Therefore the statement is False.

5) Let the inverse functions be f(x ) = 2√x and g(x ) = 9x.

A: (g· f)(x )

= g(x ) * f(x )

= 9x * 2x

= 18x3/2

Therefore (g· f)(x )√18x.

Therefore the statement is False.

B: (f · g)(x )

= f(x ) * g(x )

= 2x * 9x

= 18x3/2

Therefore (f · g)(x ) ≠  2√3x.

Therefore the statement is False.

C: (f · g)(x )

= f(x ) * g(x )

= 2x * 9x

= 18x3/2

Therefore (f · g)(x ) 6√x.

Therefore the statement is False.

D: (g· f)(x )

= g(x ) * f(x )

= 9x * 2x

= 18x3/2

Therefore (g· f)(x )x.

Therefore the statement is False.
