    common point of the graph of function

    The function f(x) = 2 + sqrt(x+4) is one to one. Find the common point of the graph of y = f(x) and y = f^-1(x)

    for future reference ... the posts you've made in this forum are not advanced algebra.

    1. D_f = [-4,+\infty) and the range is R_f=[2, +\infty)

    Therefore D_{f^{-1}}= [2, +\infty) and the range of f^{-1} is R_{f^{-1}} = [-4,+\infty)

    2. The common point of both graphs must be located onn the line y = x (why?)

    Therefore solve for x:

    x = 2 + \sqrt{x+4}~,~x\ge 2

    Spoiler:
    You should come out with (5, 5)

    i got the answer that does not have solution...

    it says (5,5)
    it's wacky and confusing to follow your step sir... is there any other way?

    why? ... it would help if you were to show how you solved the equation given to you by earboth.
