    Domain

    I'm having a lot of trouble with finding the domain of this question:

    $\displaystyle sqrt(8x-4)/sqrt(x)$

    I get [.5, inf), which I'm told is wrong.

    From the denominator it is clear that $\displaystyle x\neq 0 $ or $\displaystyle x \neq \mathbb{R}^-$

    In the numerator $\displaystyle 8x-4 > 0$ giving $\displaystyle x > \frac{1}{2}$

    Your solution sounds good to me.
