We have to find the inverse function of f(x) = 3x + ln x
Let y = f(x) = 3x + ln x
Now, we have to express x in terms of y to determine the inverse function.
Here, y = 3x + ln x; it can be seen that we can neither bring x from the first term inside the ln function nor can we take the x from the ln function outside. Also, there is no corresponding value for y for values of x <= 0. This makes it impossible to express x in terms of y.
It is not possible to find the inverse function of f(x) = 3x + ln x
You can find the inverse function of f(x) = 3x +lnx. The process requires the use of the Lambert W-function. The inverse function is (1/3)W(3e^x).
