Hey I need some help with the following problems:

Find (f^-1)'(a):

1. f(x)= 2x^3 + 3x^2 + 7x + 4, a=4

2. f(x)= x^3 + 3sinx + 2cosx, a=2

If , then . Find

*b*from the given*a*.

Now use this rule: If , . Hence .

For example, for (1): (the quadratic has no real roots). So

Similarly for (2). . By inspection, is a solution. Hence .
