For your first question you know that the domain of the log function is all positive real numbers and hence you must have x + 5 > 0 and 7  x > 0. Hence x > 5 and x < 7, or said said in one statement 5 < x < 7. But there is one other possible problem. If ln (x+5) = ln (7x) then the denominator of F(x) is zero which is not allowed. But (x+5) = ln (7x) when x + 5 = 7  x or 2x = 2 which is x = 1. Thus the domain of F(x) is all x which satisfy 5 < x < 7 except x = 1. For the second problem I am going to write s = sqrt{2  3 ln(1  t)} so then the task is to solve for t.
Raise each side to the power e to get
Hence the inverse of g(t)= sqrt {23 ln (1t)} is h(s ) = 1  e^{(2  s2)/3}. I hope this helps and good luck on the retake,
