total amount to be paid = $19.5 step-by-step explanation: given , original price =$25.99

discount = 25%

discount amount = 25% of original price

discount amount = 25/100   * 25.99

discount amount = $6.49 hence , the total amount to be paid = original price - discount amount =$25.99 - $6.49 =$19.5

total amount to be paid = \$19.5

The inverse operations are:

$12 - x^2 = 3$

$12 - 3 = x^2$

Step-by-step explanation:

Given

$x^2 + 3 = 12$

Required

Determine the inverse operations

The operation in the given equation is addition operation;

The inverse of operation is the subtraction operation

This implies that, the operation be converted from addition to subtraction:

Considering $x^2 + 3 = 12$

Subtract both sides by 3

$x^2 + 3 - 3 = 12 - 3$

$x^2 = 12 - 3$ ---- This is an inverse operation

This can be rewritten as $12 - x^2 = 3$

Another inverse operation is;

Considering $x^2 + 3 = 12$

Subtract both sides by $x^2$

$x^2 - x^2 + 3 = 12 - x^2$

$3 = 12 - x^2$ ---- This is another inverse operation

This can be rewritten as $12 - 3 = x^2$
