Chapter 2.1, Problem 45E
To determine

Find the domain of the function f(x)=2x,  on the interval 1x5

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 45E

The domain of the function f(x)=2x is [1,5]

Explanation of Solution

Given information:Consider the function f(x)=2x

Calculation:

Recall the domain of a function is the set of input or argument values for which the function is real and defined.

Assume a function f(x)=2x from the interval 1x5 values as shown in the figure below:

  Precalculus: Mathematics for Calculus - 6th Edition, Chapter 2.1, Problem 45E

From the above graph, the x values are limited to the values from x=1 to x=5

Thus, the domain of the function f(x)=2x is [1,5]
