I'm trying to figure out the inverse of this, so that I can find the derivative of the inverse: $$y = x^3-2x^2+5x$$ or something very similar. You just swap the variables and solve for y, right?$x = y^3 - 2y^2 +5y$But where do you go from here? I can't figure out how to isolate the y, since any sort of division leaves an extra y in a denominator
