    Doman interval notation

    Express the domain interval notaton.

     H(x) = \frac {t}{\sqrt (t^2-t-6)}

    What I did is factor  t^2-t-6

     (t-3)(t+2)

    then using interval notation.

    (t-3)(t+2) ≤0

    t-3 ≤ t-2 ???

    am i doing right thing?

    H(t) is defined for values of t such that t^2-t-6 > 0

    (t-3)(t+2) > 0

    now think about where the graph of t^2 - t - 6 is positive ...

    domain ... (-\infty,-2) \cup (3, \infty)
