We want to determine whether $f\left(x\right)=-\frac{7}{2}x$f(x)=72x and $g\left(x\right)=-\frac{2}{7}x$g(x)=27x are inverse functions.
We want to determine whether $f\left(x\right)=3x+12$f(x)=3x+12 and $g\left(x\right)=\frac{1}{3}x-4$g(x)=13x4 are inverse functions.
We want to determine whether $f\left(x\right)=3x-6$f(x)=3x6 and $g\left(x\right)=\frac{1}{3}x-2$g(x)=13x2 are inverses.
