Suppose g(x)=4x^2+8x+13. Does g have an inverse? If so, find g^{-1}(25). If not, enter "undef".

g(x) only has an inverse if you restrict the domain.

g(x) is a concave up parabola.  At the vertex       $$x= \frac{-b}{2a}=\frac{-8}{8}=-1$$

So if you restrict the domain to x>-1   or   X<-1     then it will have an inverse, otherwise, it does not.

Since no restriction is given, the inverse is undefined.
