2021 RI P2 Q1

Functions $\text{f}$ and $\text{g}$ are defined by

$\text{f}:x\mapsto {{e}^{{{(x-1)}^{2}}}}$, $x\in \mathbb{R}$,
$\text{g}:x\mapsto \frac{1}{2-x}$, $x\in \mathbb{R}$, $1\le x<2$.


Sketch the graph of $y=\text{f}(x)$.



If the domain of $\text{f}$ is restricted to $x\ge k$, state with a reason the least value of $k$ for which the function ${{\text{f}}^{-1}}$ exists.


In the rest of the question, the domain of $\text{f}$ is $x\ge k$, using the value of $k$ found in part (ii).


Find ${{\text{g}}^{-1}}(x)$ and show that the composite function ${{\text{g}}^{-1}}{{\text{f}}^{-1}}$ exists.



Find the range of ${{\text{g}}^{-1}}{{\text{f}}^{-1}}$.
