find formula for inverse: f,g,h invertible, f(x)=g(h(x))  TOPIC_SOLVED

Suppose f, g, and h are invertible and that f(x)=g(h(x))
I need to find a formula for f-1(x) in trems of g-1 and h-1
so, I was thinking that inverse of f(x) would be h(g(x)), but when it asks for g-1 and h-1, there's a step I'm missing. How do I look for g-1? :confused:

How did you arrive at this conclusion...?

To learn about inverse functions, try here. Once you have learned the basic terms and techniques, note that you would be solving "y = g(h(x))" for "x=":

And so forth. :wink:
