The Domain of the Function...

Ex. The domain of the function: f(x) = sqrt (x) is x > 0


I don't really understand how this is to be.

I don't really understand how this is to be.

For this particular example, consider the radical. Can you have a negative number inside a square root?

(Note: The domain should actually be "x > 0".)

To learn in general about how to find domains and ranges, try here. :wink:
