Hi Simon,
I used the free form input in that form: "inverse function of f(x)=x^2", so I essentially used Wolfram alpha
My point or rather my question was however, why Mathematica returns a solution where there should be none, as to my understanding f(x)=x^2 cannot be inverted. But then my understanding is quite limited, so please bear with me if this is just a lapse of knowledge on my part :)
