    Math trouble! F(x) problem with a domain twist.

    Here is the problem: Let y = f(z) = √(4 − z^2) and z = g(x) = 2x + 3. Compute the compositiony = f(g(x)). Find the largest possible domain of x-values so that the composition y = f(g(x))is defined. The answer: −5/2 ≤ x ≤ −1/2 Can someone guide me through the steps on how to reach such a...

    Composite Function

    Hello, I badly need help with a question.. Just to start of by defining the functions. f: Q -> R where f(x) = 0,2cos(pi*x)-7 g: N -> Q where g(x) = 5x/2 h(x) = f(g(x)) therefore h(x)= 0,2cos(5x*pi/2)-7 a) What is the range of h? b) What is the domain of h? c) Is h surjective (onto) ? I...

    Optimization problem - defining domain

    Hi, Can someone help me formally define what the domain would be for this question? I was fortunately able to reach the correct solution for this question without a well defined range, but for future sake, I would like to be able to know how to derive it. I know that the domain would...

    Domain and polynomial degree

    Hi, I hope someone can help. So I have the following function h(x) = f(x)\cdot (1/f(x)). I'm trying to understand if the degree in the function changes why the domain would be different. For example, let's say that f(x) = (x^2)-25...the domain for h(x) would be all real numbers such that x...

    Reciprocal Trigonometric Functions

    Hi, I hope someone can help. I'm trying to understand the domain for the reciprocal trigonometric functions. As follows: For secant function: For cosecant function: For cotangent function: // same as secant function's domain I know that the domain must exclude values that make the...

    Domain of a Function

    How to find the domain of the function. 3/(1 +(4/x^2))^(1/2) when I set the denominator equal to zero, I get stuck 1 + (4/x^2) = 0 x^2 + 4 = 0 x^2 = -4 now cannot take the root of negative

    domain of inverse square root

    I'm asked to find the domain for this question... My ans is (x-1)^2 + (y+1) ^2 >-1 , but the ans given by the author is different , from the sketch , we can know that the author ans is (x-1)^2 + (y+1) ^2 ≠ -1 , am i right ? Which is correct ?

    domain of function

    the domain of this fucntion is given by (x^2) +(y^2) ≤ 16 , but i think it's wrong .... It should be (x^2) +(y^2)< 16 , right ? Since if sqrt (16- (x^2) -(y^2) ) = 0 , the whole equation will become 1/ 0 , which is undefined

    domain of multivariable function

    from the graph of x and y shown , we know that the x and y value cant be exceed 3 , since it's a circle , why the domain for x and y is x and y can be any number (R) ?

    Domain of pdf from cdf

    Hello, probably obvious question, but what I would like clarified is, is the the domain of the cdf always the domain of the pdf once you for instance take the derivative of the cdf to find the pdf, the pdf will have the same domain right? Also related question, but if you find a function for a...

    Finding the domain of absolute convergence

    Find the domain of absolute convergence for: $$\sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{(n!)(iz+1)^n} {n^3+ \sqrt[3] {n}} $$ which test should be used in this case? I tried the ratio test, but the terms did not cancel out (some did): $\lim_{n\to \infty} \frac{(n+1)!(iz+1)^{n+1}} {(n+1)^3 + \sqrt[3]...

    More Domain and Range

    Hi! I was just wondering if writing the domain of a circle using interval notation like this: [3,7] was the same as stating it as 3≤x≤7? I was doing a question in my text book and answered all the questions correctly using the method however a box next to the questions said to "Refer to...

    Quadratics Domain and Range?

    Question: For the parabola with equation y=x^2+7x+4, find the vertex by completing the square. Hence, find the domain and range. What translation would map the parabola y=x^2 onto y = x^2+7x+4? I understand how to complete the square and I found that the vertex was (-7/2,-33/4) however I don't...

    Domain of theta for a polar equation

    Hello! I was wondering if there is a way to determine the domain of theta for a polar equation so that the graph creates 1 full rotation back to the origin and no more. For example, if I had the polar equation r=9sin2(theta), I can see that it takes from theta=0 to theta=pi for the graph to go...
