The function f is defined by f (x) =√x − 20 for all positive numbers x. If p = f(q) for some positive numbers q and p, what is q in terms of p?


(A) (p + 20)^2

(B) √(p + 20)

(C) (√p + 20)^2

(D) √(p^2 + 20)

(E) (p^2 + 20)^2


\(f(q)=√q-20=p.............√q=p+20.......q=(p+20)^2\)...A

OR

Take p=1, so √q-20=1.....q=(20+1)^2
Look in choices
Only A matches
