    your function has two equal signs in it.

    domain x >=-1 range y <= 0

    If you take the square root of a negative number, it is not a member of the real number system. x cannot be negative. The domain of f(x) is \[[0,\infty)\]

    ^not true, x can be negative

    Yes, but it will not yield a real number

    I'm assuming he wants real numbers

    x + 1 cannot be less than zero

    It says \[-\sqrt{x}=1\]

    How can x be negative?

    sqrt(x+1) not sqrt(x)

    Oh i was going by the original post. Didn't see the updated one.

    \[f(x)=-\sqrt{x+1} \,\,\text {or} f(x)=-\sqrt{x}+1?\]

    So, which is it?

    Use parentheses

    f(x)= -√x+1

    so 1 is not under the square root?

    it is. x+1 are under the square root

    OK, use parentheses next time \[\sqrt{x+1}>0, x>=-1\] Domain is \[[-1,\infty)\]

  23. cinar

    then domain is [-1,infinite) range is [0, infinite)
