    1) Given the function f(x)=sqrt(x+8), find the DOMAIN of the inverse function, f^-1(x).
    a) [0,â??)
    b) (-â??, 0]

    2) Suppose that a person x inches tall sprains an ankle. An approximation for the length of a crutch (in inches) that a person might need is given by the function f(x)=19/26x+2. Find and interpret f^-1(49.5).
    a) f^-1(49.5)=38.2; A crutch length of 49.5 inches would be appropriate for a person 38.2 inches tall.
    b) f^-1(49.5)=65; A crutch length of 65 inches would be appropriate for a person 49.5 inches tall.
    c) f^-1(49.5)=38.2; A crutch length of 38.2 inches would be appropriate for a person 49.5 inches tall.
    d) f^-1(49.5)=65; A crutch length of 49.5 inches would be appropriate for a person 65 inches tall.

    3)Given that f(x) is an exponential function of the form f(x)=k*b^x, use the table below to determine the values of k and b.
    x -2 -1 1 4 5
    f(x) 27 / 100 9 / 20 5 / 4 625 / 108 3125 / 324
    k=_____
    b=_______

    4) Determine the values of k and b with the points shown below y=k*b^x.
    (-1,12) (0,4)
    k=______
    b=_______
    (-1,6) (0,2)
    k=_______
    b=_______

    5) The temperature, in degrees Fahrenheit, of a cup of coffee can be expressed by T(t)=70+110e^-0.04t, where t is measured in minutes. Use this equation to answer the following questions. Round to the nearest degree.

    What is the initial temperature of the coffee?
    ________degrees
