Much better!

We are looking for values of x where the expression is undefined. In the case of fractions we look for where the denominator is 0.

So for 1)

we know that is forbidden. Thus x = 3 is where the expression is undefined.

A more complicated example is number 4)

We are looking for places where

So y cannot be -1 or 7.

See what you can do with the rest.
