    Re: domain

    What sort of "help" do you want or need? Do you know what "domain of a function" means? Do you know what \sqrt{x} and |x| mean? It is impossible to give suggestions or hints without know what you do understand.

    In order for there to be a composition of functions \displaystyle \begin{align*} f \circ g(x) = f \left( g(x) \right)  \end{align*}, the range of the second function needs to be completely contained in the implied domain of the first function (so that all these values can be inserted into the first function).

    If this is the case, then the domain of your composition will be the same as the domain as the second function. If not, you will need to determine the largest possible domain for your second function so that the range WILL be completely contained in the implied domain of the first function.

    Re: domain

    I have made a mistake in my original post, I'm editing now. But what you have done is a good start. Why not move everything that's not in the absolute value to the other side, then square both sides to remove the absolute value?

    Re: domain

    That looks good so far. Can you determine where this equation equals 0? Can you use this to determine where the function is positive?

    Re: domain

    I don't think I would square both sides. Rather, look at sin(x)\ge 0 and sin(x)< 0 separately. Of course, sin(x)\ge 0 for 2n\pi\le x\le (2n+1)\pi for any integer n, sin(x)< 0 for (2n-1)\pi< x< 2n\pi for any integer n.

    If sin(x)\ge 0, |sin(x)|= sin(x) so the argument of the square root is 3sin(x)- sin(x)- 2= 2 sin(x)- 2 which will be less than 0 if and only if sin(x)< 1 which is true for all such x except multiples of \pi.

    If sin(x)< 0, |sin(x)|= -sin(x) so the argument of the square root is 3sin(x)+ sin(x)- 2= 4sin(x)- 2 which will be less than 0 if and only if sin(x)< 1/2 which is true for all x such that sin(x)< 0[/tex].

    Notice that I have looked at values of x such that the argument of the square root is NEGATIVE- where the function does NOT exist. That is, the domain of this function is all real numbers except (2n-1)\pi\le x\le 2n\pi.
