1. Let $f$ be defined by \[f(x) = \left\{ \begin{array}{cl} 3-x & \text{ if } x \leq 3, \\ -x^3+2x^2+3x & \text{ if } x>3. \end{array} \right.\]Calculate $f^{-1}(0)+f^{-1}(6)$.

2. For how many values of $x$ is the function $y=\frac{x-2}{x^2-7x+10}$ not defined?

3. If $\sqrt{5 + x} + \sqrt{20 - x} = 7$, what is the value of $(5 + x)(20 - x)$?

2.

 

\(y=\frac{x-2}{x^2-7x+10}\)

 

Factor the denominator

 

y =        (x - 2)

     ___________    

       (x - 2) (x - 5)

 

This will not be defined  for any values that make the denominator  0

 

Thus....it will not be defined when x  = 2   or  x = 5

 

Thus.....two values

3. 

 

\( \sqrt{5 + x} + \sqrt{20 - x} = 7\)

 

We probably can  just solve this by inspection....note.....x = 4 seems to work

 

So

 

(5 + 4) (20 - 4)   =  

 

9 * 16 =

 

144
