Let  and let  be the inverse of . Find

Let's find the inverse.....let  p(x) = y

y = 2x3 - 113       add 113 to both sides

y + 113  = 2x3     divide both sides by 2

( y + 113 ) / 2   = x3    take the cube root of both sides

3√[( y + 113) / 2]  = x       exchange x and y

3√[( x + 113) / 2]  = y       for "y"  write q(x)

q(x) = 3√[( x + 113) / 2]     so q(137) = 3√[( 137 + 113) / 2] = 3√125  = 5

Wait, but doesn't ((137+133)/2)^(1/3) simplify into (270/2)^(1/3) which is (135/2)^(1/3), not (125/2)^1/3.
