Chapter 2.1, Problem 57E
To determine

Find the domain of the function g(x)=2+x3x

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 57E

The domain of the function g(x)=2+x3x is [2,3)(3,)

Explanation of Solution

Given information: Consider the function g(x)=2+x3x

Calculation:

We can’t take the square root of a negative number, so we must have g(x)0

  2+x0x2

And for denominator,

A rational expression is not defined when the denominator is 0.

Since 3x0

  x3

Hence the given function is defined for all the values of x in the set of real numbers except of the value x=3

Thus, the domain of the function g(x)=2+x3x is [2,3)(3,)
