I would be inclined to think that "side area" means "area of the sides" which is what what skeeter calculated.
HallsofIvy Yesterday, 18:21The inverse of $f(x)=e^x$ is $f^{-1}(x) = \ln{x}$
... there is an obvious mistake in the answer choices.
Maybe a typo? $f(x)
If $f^{-1}(x)$ is the inverse of $f(x)=e^x$, then $f^{-1}(x)=$
$a. \ln\dfrac{2}{x}$
$b. \ln \dfrac{x}{2}$
$c. \dfrac{1}{2}\ln
Re: 202 AP Calculus Inverse of e^x
the graph is close, but no cigar.
skeeter Yesterday, 23:25$f(1)=e \implies f^{-1}(e) =1$
however, if $f^{-1}(x)=\dfrac{1}{2}\ln{x}$, then $ f^{-1}(e)
