f : x  1 x.
3. A function f is defined by 2
Another function g is such that
gf 1 : x  4 x 2  8 x  6. Find the function g
in a similar form.

## 4. The functions f and g are defined by

f : x  x 2 , x  0, g : x  x  4, x  4 . Find the
composite functions fg and gf. Hence,
find (fg)-1 and (gf)-1, stating any
restriction which must be placed on the
domain of these inverses.
