To determine the functions and their domains

Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 5E

The domain of f is {x|x3} and the domain of g is {x|x0} .

The functions are

  (f+g)(x)=x3+x2,(fg)(x)=x3x2,(fg)(x)=x33x2,(f/g)(x)=x3x2 .

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

The given function is f(x)=x3,g(x)=x2 .

Formula used:

The formulas used are:

  (f+g)(x)=f(x)+g(x)(fg)(x)=f(x)g(x)(fg)(x)=f(x)g(x)(f/g)(x)=f(x)g(x)

Calculation :

The domain of f is {x|x3} and the domain of g is {x|x0} .

The functions f+g, fg, fg, f/g can be found by:

  (f+g)(x)=f(x)+g(x)    (f+g)(x)=x3+x2           [domain {x|x3 and x0}](fg)(x)=f(x)g(x)    (fg)(x)=x3x2     [domain {x|x3 and x0}](fg)(x)=f(x)g(x)       (fg)(x)=(x3)(x2)(fg)(x)=x33x2         [domain {x|x3 and x0}](f/g)(x)=f(x)g(x)   (f/g)(x)=x3x2         [domain {x|x3 and x0}]

Hence, the functions are

  (f+g)(x)=x3+x2,(fg)(x)=x3x2,(fg)(x)=x33x2,(f/g)(x)=x3x2 .
