C. (f(x))^{3}

D. f(x^{3})

In order the answer to be A, the question should read:

If f(x) = \frac{125}{x^{3}}, what is the value of f(5x)*f(x/5) in terms of f(x)?

Say x=1, then:

f(x) = f(1)=\frac{125}{1^{3}}=125;

f(5x)=f(5)=\frac{125}{5^3}=1;

f(\frac{x}{5})=f(\frac{1}{5})=\frac{125}{(\frac{1}{5})^3}=125*125.

{f(5x)}*{f(\frac{x}{5})}={f(5)}*{f(\frac{1}{5})}=125^2 and since f(x) = f(1)=125, then {f(5x)}*{f(\frac{x}{5})}=125^2=(f(x))^2.

Answer: A.

Hope it's clear.

Thanks Bunuel.

The question really troubled me.
I tried methods and still could not arrive at correct answer.
Your verdict has confirmed my doubt.

I shall edit the question.

PS: You already did that. Thanks again.

D. f(x^{3})

E. f(125x)


lets 125 =A
so we can write f(x)=A/(X^3)...........(1
Now lets sove

f(5x)*f(x/5)=(A/(5X)^3)*(A/(X/5)^3)====>(A^2/X^6)===>(A/X^3)^2==(F(X))^2==>USING(1)

Hence A

1. f(5x) = 125/125*x^3 = 1/x^3

In step 3, you have multiplied 1. & 2. What would be the answer if you divide 1. by 2. ? I am kinda confused. I get f(5x)/f(x/5) = 1/5^6. Help, thanks!

The questions is "what is the value of f(5x)*f(\frac{x}{5})..." (f(5x) multiplied by f(x/5)) not "what is the value of \frac{f(5x)}{f(\frac{x}{5})}..." (f(5x) divided by f(x/5)).

Please refer your Ist response in this topic, the quoted part asks to find \frac{f(5x)}{f(\frac{x}{5})}. Also, the question I have from my source of practice questions requires to find the \frac{f(5x)}{f(\frac{x}{5})}. Thanks!

C. (f(x))^{3}

D. f(x^{3})

E. f(125x)


In order the answer to be A, the question should read:

If f(x) = \frac{125}{x^{3}}, what is the value of f(5x)*f(x/5) in terms of f(x)?

Say x=1, then:

f(x) = f(1)=\frac{125}{1^{3}}=125;

f(5x)=f(5)=\frac{125}{5^3}=1;

f(\frac{x}{5})=f(\frac{1}{5})=\frac{125}{(\frac{1}{5})^3}=125*125.

{f(5x)}*{f(\frac{x}{5})}={f(5)}*{f(\frac{1}{5})}=125^2 and since f(x) = f(1)=125, then {f(5x)}*{f(\frac{x}{5})}=125^2=(f(x))^2.

Answer: A.

Hope it's clear.


Can we take constant 5 outside of f(5x) i.e 5f(x) ?
I was able to arrive at the answer by taking constant outside of the function,but not sure whether it is correct approach or not.

It depends on HOW are you doing that. Please show your work.

No, that's not correct.
f(x) = \frac{125}{x^{3}},
f(5x) = \frac{125}{(5x)^{3}}=\frac{1}{x^3}.
f(\frac{x}{5}) = \frac{125}{(\frac{x}{5})^{3}}=\frac{125^2}{x^3}.


So, f(x)=125*f(5x) and f(\frac{x}{5})=125*f(x)

Hope it helps.

f(5x) * f(\frac{x}{5}) = \frac{125}{(5x)^3} * \frac{125}{(\frac{x}{5})^3}= \frac{125}{x^3} * \frac{125}{x^3} = [f(x)]^2

Answer = A
