Can someone help me with this?
       Consider  the function f[x_]:=x/(1-x), clearly the inverse of
 this function is F[x_]:=x/(1+x). 
 How do I get a numerical result for F[x] when f[x] is a more
In the above example F[2.1]=0.677419, but 
              InverseFunction[f[2.1]]//N=   (-1.90909)
 Am I doing something wrong? I want to make sure I can find a numerical
 result before I use this for a more complex task.
 Can someone help?
 Please reply via e-mail to psantos at
 Thanks in advance.
