Y=x^2-4x+3 => x^2-4x+3-y=0

delta'=4-3+y=1+y

=> x1=2+squareroot(1+y)

and x2=2-squareroot(1-y)

this is the inverse you choose x1 or x2 depending on the constrains given . - Nov 22nd 2009, 05:58 PMskeeter

swap x and y ...

restrict the domain of the original function to , and the inverse function is
