for $x=1$ $y = 3(1)  1 = 3 1 = 4$ I'm sure you can continue for $x=2,~3$

Hi everyone, please help me to solve this equation, my brain stuck already... given f(x) = 2x  6, determine value of k if inverse function f(2k) = f(k+1). Please help me with the detailed solution. Last edited by skipjack; September 13th, 2017 at 12:30 PM.

The function f(x) = 2x  6 has inverse g(x) = x/2 + 3. As g(2k) = k + 3 and f(k+1) = 2k + 2  6 = 2k  4, these are equal for k = 7.

$\displaystyle y=3x1$ So, If, $\displaystyle x=3$ Then, $\displaystyle y=3\times31=91=8$ $\displaystyle x=2$ Then, $\displaystyle y=3\times21=61=5$ $\displaystyle x=1$ Then, $\displaystyle y=3\times11=31=2$ $\displaystyle x=0$ Then, $\displaystyle y=3\times01=01=1$ $\displaystyle x=1$ Then, $\displaystyle y=3\times{1}1=31=4$ $\displaystyle x=2$ Then, $\displaystyle y=3\times{2}1=61=7$ $\displaystyle x=3$ Then, $\displaystyle y=3\times{3}1=91=10$
