The surface area of a sphere is S(x) = 4πx2, where x is the length of the radius of the sphere. Restrict the domain to create a one-to-one function. Find and describe the inverse function

Accepted Solution

Given that the surface area of the sphere is S(x)=4πx², the inverse function will be obtain as follows: make x the subject of the function
get the square root of both sides:
replace x by S⁻¹(x) and S(x) by x
this will give us the inverse as :
The above implies that the inverse is the square root of the radius divided by 4π
